Weight Loss Retreat Chocolate Smoothie
The FitFarms Weight Loss Retreat Healthy Smoothie
This Smoothie looks so good a lot of people ask how could it even be healthy? It looks so naughty that it must be wrong but its right in so many ways. We usually serve this on Sunday morning at the FitFarms Weight Loss Retreat which is a real uplifting breakfast after the mornings exercise.
Here is the ingredients and cooking preparation method.
Weight Loss Retreat Smoothie Ingredients
1 table spoon of Cacao Powder
1 table spoon of peanut butter (whole earth is a good quality peanut butter)
1 table spoon of vanilla protein powder (pure whey protein powder by bulk powders is a good quality protein and can be bought from Amazon)
100 ml plant milk (Alpro Almond and Soya are good options)
150 ml Coconut milk
2 drops vanilla essence
3 table spoons of chia seeds
1 tea spoon of keto sweetener (Stevia can be purchased from Amazon)
Topping and Layering ingredients
Dried orange Fruit
2 table spoons of coconut soaked chia seeds. Soak for 30 minutes.
2 table spoons of granola
Weight Loss Retreat Preparation Method
Smoothies are extremely simple because all you need to do is put all the ingredients into a blender and give it a good whiz.
However to make them look good takes a little bit more time but believe it or not it's not that long. Layered smoothies like this one look the best in my opinion so here's how this one is layered.
Poor in half the smoothie mixture. Then create a layer using the harder ingredients in this case being the cacao nibs and granola. Then put the two spoons of chia seeds on top completing the layer.
Gently poor in the remaining smoothie mixture and decorate the top with cacao nibs and dried orange fruit.
FitFarms Chefs Top Tip
Play around with the ingredients to make it thinner or thicker to suit your taste but don't make it too thin otherwise you will not be able to create the layer.
