Easter. It happened. We ate too much chocolate and indulged in a bit too much Bank Holiday booze in the sunshine.
To get back on track after all of the treats, I whipped up this smoothie following a run along the coast. Packed with rich cacao, you still get a lovely post-Easter chocolatey hit without the guilt, and the addition of the maca and and bee pollen, both of which are full of vitamin B and energy enhancing properties, this super smoothie is the perfect way to get you back into the swing of your healthy eating.
Energising Blueberry & Cacao Smoothie
Makes 2 small glasses
- 100ml homemade cashew milk (method coming soon)
- 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 1 tbsp Sunwarrior Protein powder
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 100g frozen blueberries
- 50ml chilled filtered water
- 1 tsp local bee pollen
All you need to do is whizz all of the ingredients, reserving the bee pollen, together in a blender. Pour into a glass, top with the bee pollen and there you have it. Use local bee pollen wherever possible, as this is greater for tackling hayfever symptoms and boosting the immune system.
How are you rebooting after an indulgent Easter weekend?
