There’s just something about the rich, delicious blend of chocolate, coffee and bananas that makes me go a little nuts! That’s why I added almonds and replaced the espresso with decaf in the Wired Mocha Monkey Smoothie for a new twist on an old goodie.
This smoothie is small yet mighty! It’s only 300 calories but it’s packed full of nutrients and flavour. Enjoying this quick liquid breakfast will start your day off with a powerful punch of potassium, vitamin E, manganese, magnesium and vitamin B6.
Add the right protein powder and you can double, triple or even quadruple it’s nutrient density!
The soy protein isolate I used added an extra 100 calories but nearly doubled the potassium, tripled the protein levels, more than doubled the vitamin B6 content and added a significant amount of vitamin B12 (important mood enhancing vitamins) – just to name a few!
