This superfood chocolate smoothie is incredibly delicious and packed full of goodness! It's an amazing way to start the day, and it actually makes me want to jump out of bed for it. You can even make a big batch in the morning and enjoy it again later in the day if your sweet tooth calls for it!
  • Half a papaya (200g without the skin and seeds)*
  • 1 tbsp lucuma
  • 1 tbsp mesquite
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • Handful of spinach
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted**
  • 2 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 cups almond milk (500ml)
  • 1 scoop protein powder (optional)
  1. Add your nut milk and papaya to a blender and blitz until fully combined. Add in your spinach and do the same, until there are no lumpy bits!
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients and blend for a further 1-2 minutes, making sure everything is nicely blitzed and you've got no odd lumps and pieces!
  3. Add to two glassed and top with cacao nibs! Enjoy!
*If you don't have a papaya, bananas are a good substitute. Avocados will also work but you may want to add more dates to increase the sweetness.

** If you have dried dates, you should soak them in hot water for 10 minutes to make sure they're nice and soft so that they blend well.

I made a big batch and kept some airtight in the fridge for the next morning to have on the go. It still tasted amazing, so if you're short on time you could do that!
