Sweet ’N’ Creamy Banana Thickshake (Dairy Free)

This shake is full of healthy fats, fibre and carbohydrates. Bananas are a high sugar fruit but are a fantastic source of nutrients, including a range of vitamins, magnesium, calcium, iron and potassium. Potassium helps with body functions such as muscle contraction, therefore low levels of potassium can lead to muscle cramps. 

Serves 1
Ingredients

1 Small banana (6”-7” long)
1/2 Avocado
200ml Coconut milk (try The Green Machine homemade version)
1/4 tsp Ground nutmeg
1 tsp Maca powder (Organic, raw)
Handful of ice

Optional
1 tsp Ground flaxseed
1/4 tsp 100% pure stevia  (not a sugar/stevia blend)
1/4 tsp Spirulina powder
1 tsp Bee pollen

Method:

Put all liquid ingredients into a high powered blender in this order:

Coconut milk
Nutmeg, maca, spirulina, ground flaxseed
Banana and avocado

Blend all the ingredients together. Taste, then add the stevia if a little sweetness is needed, then blend again. Sprinkle with bee pollen to serve.

Done!
