I've just found my ideal breakfast

Smoothie and a coffee, what can be better than starting your day with either of these breakfast staples?

Simple. Combine the two into a delicious, filling and healthy wake up smoothie.

I'm trying to cut down on soy, so I ditched the daily soy flat white but could not bring myself to give up my daily caffeine fix. 

After making an especially YUM cacao banana and date smoothie earlier this week, I decided to add a shot of espresso. I mean it couldn't be too bad right. Bad? Hell no, it was amazing! 

Best idea ever! I haven't looked back, I have only been making smoothies that are compatible with coffee. So the green smoothies have taken a backseat this week. Here's today's kick start to my Saturday!

Cacao and banana smoothie
1 large banana
1 cup almond milk
1 cup ice
1 tbs chia seeds
1/4 avocado
2 tbs cacao
1 shot espresso - cooled
4 dates or some honey - only add if you prefer a sweet smoothie
Blitz in your blender or on speed 7/1 min in the Thermomix until smooth and creamy.
