Mint chocolate fudge breakfast smoothie

This smoothie is both refreshing and filling, and is easy to prepare ahead of time or to drink fresh on a weekend morning. It can also be used as a pre/post workout drink as it has a good balance of both fast and slow acting carbohydrates, fats and protein. The blueberries also mean it is packed with antioxidants.

Ingredients

  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 50g frozen blueberries
  • 1/2oz cacao powder
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • cold water
  • 1/2 scoop double fudge brownie Dymatize whey isolate (you can substitute this for other chocolate flavours, though this creates a decadent fudge taste)
