4-Ingredient Simple Super Smoothie

We have been enjoying this FAST drink very often -- it's super nutritious!

SOME Key Benefits You'll Super Charge with:

1. Omega-3 fats (in walnuts or hemp seeds)
Chia and flax may also be added to boost omega-3!

2. Probiotics -- TONS if you stick with PLAIN regular yogurt!

3. Fiber -- from the bananas, nuts, AND cocoa!

This is what we do!  Blend the following in this order:

3 c PLAIN yogurt
1/3 c unsweetened cocoa (roughly!)
1 c nuts (any kind! walnuts, hemp seeds, pecans, peanuts, sunflower seeds, cashews)
3 bananas

I use my Blendtec.  It turns all these nutritious foods into a delicious drink in a matter of seconds.  This recipe makes about 40 ounces and tastes great immediately.  Alternatively, drink or serve this chocolate smoothie chilled.

I love it for it's simplicity, nutrient density, tastiness, and even value!  My hubby, a previously non-yogurt-eater, even enjoys this drink!  

The kids ALL love it!  And we hope you will too!

You may also love the 3-Ingredient Super Shake!  I guess if you're getting a super nutrient dense drink, the word SUPER must be the title!

COMMENTS: Does this remind anyone of Chocolatey Goodness?  It's pretty similar, only with slightly different proportions, as well as the addition of nuts, blended to a completely smooth drink! You can consume a lot more of this, and more quickly too, compared to sitting down and eating a big bowl of Chocolatey Goodness.  SO if you're after weight loss, you may want to choose Chocolatey Goodness!  Though either way, all the great nutrients included will help boost anyone's metabolism!
