Choc Banana Smoothie

We had a couple of extra kids over after school today, I decided to whip up one of my favourite smoothies (I use this recipe when I feel like a chocolate fix but are wanting to be healthy, yes healthy food can be yummy to)

It got the thumbs up from them, they loved it.

Combine ...

1/2 cup of milk 
1 banana
1 1/2 teaspoons of dutch cocoa powder
1 tablespoon of chai seeds
2 dates (to sweeten) 
around 1/2 cup of ice. 

Blend until smooth! 

If you don't want to use Dutch cocoa powder simply use some raw cacao powder (to be extra healthy, you will find cacao powder at your local Organic Store). 

These quantities are for one serving.

High in antioxants (one of the richest sources), high in fibre and a rich source of magnesium, Vitiamin C and iron.
