Banana Chocolate Smoothie



Chocolate craving? Cacao nibs are dried and fermented cocao beans. They are essentially the key ingredient to chocolate before it actually turns into chocolate. They are still considered a stimulant to the system, therefore not Sattvic. However, if you are really craving chocolate or coffee, they are the most pure and clean alternative.  


Ingredients: 

  • 1 frozen banana 
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs 
  • 2 Tablespoons home made peanut butter 
  • 1 cup almond milk 

 

Directions: 

  • Blend ingredients 
  • Top with fruit of choice

More About Me and Sattva Recipes: 

What I have learned from the Sattva practice is to always reflect and ask "Why?" In February 2017, I moved from deep freeze Alberta winter to eternal summer in the Caribbean. At first, it felt amazing!! And then my body was like "wow, we're staying?". It was a bit of a shock to the system. My skin broke out, I had a tough time sleeping and my throat felt dry and scratchy. So, I decided to listen to my body and do a bit of a reset on my system by cleansing. I am very thankful for the support of  the Sattva Online community, as it has kept me grounded to my practice. My hope is to share my journey and creations with you and be a resource of information. What I have to offer is just a simple base of ingredients and directions . So remember to tune into your own taste and, texture preferences and be creative.
