Have you ever noticed that, whenever you mix banana with chocolate and milk, the magic happens? Having a smoothie is always a good idea, especially if it’s packed with nutrients like this one. It is the easiest, yet ultimate breakfast, snack or pre / post workout meal. The perfect on-the-go energy boost! Fill of with fibers, vitamins, healthy fats, healthy sugars, calcium and fuel up with espresso.

Ingredients

For one smoothie


1

banana

160 g

milk or plant milk

25 g (one leaf)

kale

1 tbsp

flaxseeds

2 tsp

cocoa powder

1 level tsp

ground espresso (or instant espresso powder)

making

level of difficulty
easy

01

Peel the banana and cut it into slices, then blend it in a food processor / blender together with the kale leaf and milk (or plant milk like soy or almonds’) for a few seconds.

02

Add flax seeds, a ground espresso, cocoa powder and ultimately a piece of VIVANI cappuccino chocolate to sweeten without adding any other sweetener. Feel free to make adjustments based on your taste (see below). Blend again until nice and smooth.


Tips:

To make it richer add:
some unrefined coconut oil (it will change the flavor a bit) or
half an avocado

To make the most of this smoothie:
add more kale or spinach or
add even more superfoods (like chia seeds, nuts, berries…)

To make it crunchier:
just top the cappuccino smoothie with some cocoa nibs

To make it less thick:
add some more milk/plant milk

To make it super yummy (but with more sugar):
melt some VIVANI Cappuccino Chocolate and put it onto the smoothie
