Essential Equipment



This can be made the night before and stores well in the fridge. Just give it a shake in the morning.
I use a standard cup measure. If you don’t have one you can use a mug and substitute the amount for ¾ of a standard size mug.

Find your Ingredients

Banana/avocado – fresh fruit/vegetable aisle
Nut butter - condiments/health foods. I would always recommend buying a 100% nut butter.
Soy milk - long-life milk aisle or fridge.
Cacao power - health food aisle (not cacao not cocoa - the more natural refined version has all of the health benefits).
