banana cacao nib smoothie // pb + chia

banana cacao nib smoothie // pb + chia
Hands down this is one of my favorite smoothies- simple ingredients that taste like dessert. Over the years I have found myself craving ingredients that I once turned my nose up on or just generally disliked. I remember the very first time I made Vegan Mac n' Cheese (before we even became vegan) with nooch and ended up throwing the entire batch away // we thought it was the worst thing ever. Now I put nooch in or on just about everything. The first time I tried Cacao Nibs I legit spit them out and Chia seeds looked too weird when re hydrated for me to even try them.

Now, I love them all // I actually crave them. 
So morale of the story, don't ever give up on an ingredient, you never know when that moment might be when you fall in love with a long hated ingredient for the first time.

I love the texture that the cacao nibs give the smoothie and the peanut butter banana is a classic pairing. Chia seeds add a little extra body to the smoothie.

Chia seeds are packed with antioxidants and fiber and are a great source of high quality protein. Cacao Nibs are a great source of potassium and magnesium.

This winter Justin has been lucky enough to have Saturday's off- this smoothie has been in Saturday morning Breakfast rotation and never gets old.

  1. This smoothie sounds so delicious!! I've just got a new smoothie maker so I'm really into smoothies at the moment and love trying new combinations. I've never tried cacao nibs in one before so will definitely give this a try soon! :)
