Sunny Chocolate Smoothie

King of Smoothies, (c) Jeanette Bradley

This is a high-protein, high-energy, creamy and delicious smoothie. It’s sweet but not too sweet, and makes a great breakfast. I think Elvis would approve.

1 Tablespoon cocoa powder

4 Tablespoons sunflower seed butter (or substitute another nut butter that is safe for you)

1/2 cup applesauce

1 frozen banana

1/2 – 1 cup water (just enough so that your blender will be able to blend)

Alternate: If you don’t have a frozen banana on hand, substitute a fresh banana and use 1/2 cup of ice cubes and 1/2 cup water

Place all ingredients in blender. Pulse or use ice crush setting to break up frozen pieces and then blend until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Drink immediately.

Yield: About 2 cups.
