Banana Mocha Smoothie

wake up 

This smoothie is more like a milkshake than a smoothie. Which is great when you’re needing something sweet and indulgent without all the nasty ingredients of a typical milkshake.

Sip it by the pool or on a indian summer evening. It’s so delicious!

  1. This sounds delish! What does the avocado do for this?

      It adds to the creamy “milkshake” texture AND it provides satiation. It’s a nutrient dense fat source which will keep you fuller for longer. Most smoothies are heavy on the sugar/carbs which leaves you feeling hungry a couple hours later.
