A couple of months ago I shared my recipe for chocolate, banana and almond breakfast cheesecake and in the comments Angela from Patisserie Makes Perfect (if you like cakes and everything sweet then I’d definitely recommend you take a look… once you’ve finished reading this of course!) suggested that it would also make a great smoothie. She was right!
It’s basically a pimped up version of my banana and almond breakfast smoothie, with the addition of cream cheese and dark chocolate. It’s a little indugent, so if you need a little pick-me-up before a tough day at work then I’d suggest you give this a try.
As with the banana and almond breakfast smoothie, this tastes just as good warmed up as it does cold. Simply pop it into a microwavable dish and heat on high for 1 minute, give it a quick stir, and serve. It’ll thicken up a little in the microwave so you get something almost porridge-like.
