Kaitlin emailed me this yummy recipe to share with y’all and as I was typing it up quickly ready to be published before I hit my first ever Crossfit class I decided I would make it right there and then! I hoped it would keep me going through class, energise me and be a treat all at the same time! That it definitely was! (The two bottom pictures are my attempt!)
Kaitlin says:- This would have to be one of my fave quick and easy go to treats! Its filling, healthy, and takes literally just minutes to make.
2 ripe bananas
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tbsp maple syrup or alternative liquid sweetener
All you have to do is blend it all together and eat! I set mine in the fridge for an hour or so and top with shaved dark chocolate for extra yumminess. Add more cacao for a darker, rich flavour.
Raw cacao powder is a nutrient dense superfood, full of antioxidants and is unprocessed unlike cocoa. The avocado is full of healthy fats and omega 3s for glowing skin and brain function, and bananas contain potassium and a load of other great minerals plus boost energy levels!
This is the perfect snack pre or post workout, delish!
