Sunny Chocolate Smoothie
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.
Yield: About 2 cups.
