Green Cacao Smoothie (A meal in a glass!)

INGREDIENTS – serves 6

?
?

Chia – 3 Tbsp
Almond – 100g
Date – 6
Goji Berries – 3 Tbsp
Coconut milk (I use Purehavest’s Coco Quench) – 1L
Raw Organic Cacao Powder – 30g
Avocado – 1/2
Banana – 2 (best bananas are those with the skin covered in brown spots)
Apple – 1
Natural Yoghurt or Coconut Kefir – 3 heaped spoons
Arugula or mixed salad greens – 6 cups

METHOD

Blend Chia, Almonds, Dates and Goji berries till in powder form
Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooooooth!

Enjoy!!!
I use a Thermomix to get a lovely smooth consistency but have a go with any blender you have. It is a good idea to soak the almonds overnight and once made leave the smoothie to rest for approx 15 mins to allow the chia seeds to soak.
Remember that this smoothie is like a meal and as such, take the time to consume slowly, preferably while sitting quietly. This smoothie will deliver a high dose of nutrition so if downed in big gulps, in a hurry, a belly ache will likely follow.
