# Friday goodness # Oluji cocoa powder

Friday Goodness: Yummy Cocoa smoothie: 320 calories

Hi there, i have come with another of my yummy goodness. It me thrills me to know that i can enjoy loads of goodies and still be healthy fit and sexy. Who said fitness was boring??? Lol! I love food, so i have to keep looking for ways to maintain my shape.

Today i want to share my cocoa milk shake. Its very easy to make. Very healthy, loaded with vitamins and nutrients. You can have it as a starter (breakfast) for your day, hot or cold. A great dinner idea too.

Ingredients: This will make a rich and thick shake.
  1. 1tbsp of unsweetened Cocoa powder- 12 calories
  2. 1 cup low fat milk - 96 calories
  3. 1 small very ripe Banana- 50 calories
  4. 1 tbsp of Honey- 64 calories
  5. 1/2 tsp of ground Cinnamon- 3 calories
  6. 1 tbsp of peanut butter- 94 calories  
Total of  about: 319 calories.

Method:
  • Just toss everything into the blender or smoothie maker and blitz for about 2 mins till the banana is well blended. Pour in your glass and drink.
  • If you like it hot, then heat the milk for a little while before blending.
                                                         This would make a lighter version. 

The ingredients above will make a very rich cup of shake, but if you like it mild, reduce the portions and then add ice cubes. A lighter version is about 293 calories. Kids would love it too!
I hope you enjoy this because i really do. Have a fabulous weekend! God bless.
Cheliz.

    1. Zinny zinny. The brand I use is in a tin and costs about N600. There are many other good brands out there. Check the beverage section of any supermarket.
