Magnesium Rich, Raw Choc, Banana and Almond Smoothie

file_000-18

 

Ingredients

  • 1 oz Cacao Nibs
  • 1/2 Frozen Banana
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Handful of Almonds
  • Coconut milk (I use KoKo milk) to top up

Method

Place all the ingredients into a high powered blender (I use a Nutri-bullet), top it up with coconut milk until the ingredients are covered. I quite like a thick smoothie so I gauge the amount I use based on consistency. Blitz until all the ingredients have combined and the nuts and nibs are no longer visible. Voila! You have a delicious tasting super-smoothie to enjoy. Let me know what you think!

Healthy tip

Raw chocolate not only contains a potent antioxidant that helps combat oxidative stress in the body, it is also a great source of the mineral, Magnesium which is needed in the body to perform over 300 different enzymatic processes. Bananas and Almonds are also a good source of magnesium so this super-smoothie is a perfect fix. Migraines, depression, poor sleep and aches and pains are linked to low levels of magnesium so it is important to eat an abundance of magnesium-rich foods. Are you getting enough?
