Chocolate Nut Butter Fudge Smoothie

IMG_0539
Simple, delicious and decadent smoothie bowl if ever there was one! Breakfast doesn’t get much better than this.

I made this smoothie in my little college room which goes to show just how easy it is to stay healthy with limited space/limited resources. Yes, the ingredients are more expensive than if I had opted for a traditional chocolate shake, but that wouldn’t give my body any of the nutritional benefits that this smoothie offers. It also keeps me feeling full and energised for much longer, so I don’t feel the urge to reach for those mid morning snacks.

It is sweetened purely using whole foods (medjool dates and banana), meaning that I am consuming the fibre as well as the natural sugars inherent in these foods. More information on this can be found in previous blog posts.

I hope you guys enjoy! xx
