The only thing that keeps me from eating dessert every night is knowing that it is the first thing that will happen the next morning. Avocado and banana are a dream team for a silky creamy texture. With energizing maca and cacao, this is one of my all time favorite morning bowls.
1 cup almond milk
2 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp maca powder
optional: a few ice cubes if you want it colder
optional: blueberries or kale to pack in some extra antioxidants and vitamins*
Blend ingredients together until smooth. Check consistency- add more almond milk to make thinner, add more ice to make thicker and/or colder. Pour into a bowl and add an extra sprinkle of chia seeds or any other preferred topping.
*To keep smoothies cold and thick without using ice, use frozen fruit. Store overripe bananas in halves or fourths (peeled) in airtight ziplock in freezer. Find frozen greens and fruit with no added sugar or other ingredients in the frozen food aisle. It can be cheaper to purchase frozen produce and also cuts back on food waste.
