#SuperPoweredYou Almond and Cacao Smoothie


Good morning, afternoon, or be it evening where you are! I just actually had this smoothie as a kinda dinner substitute so I'm selling it for any time of day!

I'm part of The Orchard Programme run by Tesco where I get to try out certain products for free or for less every now and again. This particular programme focuses on Bioglan who have launched their superfoods range through Tesco. I ordered the Chia & Flax (A dual source of plant-based Omega 3, protein and fibre) and Raw Organic Cacao Powder (rich in iron to help prevent tiredness and fatigue) with my usual shopping delivered straight to my home!

I've used the chia and flax probably every day throwing it on tip of my porridge, on top of my granola and in my smoothies. When I got the cacao powder I decided to create a smoothie recipe featuring both together.

#SuperPoweredYou Almond and Cacao Smoothie 



Ingredients: 
1 cup of almond milk
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen greens (spinach or kale work well)
1 medjool date
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp chia & flax
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp cacao nibs
ice cubes to create desired consistency

Directions: 
Add all ingredients to blender and blitz until smooth!

Tesco say that superfoods are...

...natural food products containing a high concentration of nutrients and phytochemicals that are shown to have health benefits beyond those of 'common' foods. They are the most pure and natural form of nutrients available, and can be conveniently added to your current diet to increase its nutritional value. Superfoods offer the whole nutrient in its raw form.
Use Superfoods daily as part of your healthy diet and lifestyle.
Remember a healthy diet and lifestyle consists of:
> Variety and moderation 
> Fresh whole foods 
> Organic foods where possible 
What are your favourite superfoods?!
