This healthy smoothie makes for a tasty, refreshing recovery drink after a hard workout when you need to replenish some energy from both fat and carbs together quickly.
While you don’t want too much refined fructose in your diet, a little bit of fructose (fruit sugar) from the banana will help boost athletic performance if you’re particularly active.
Banana adds some sweet taste along with vitamin B6, manganese and some more potassium, while the cacao powder adds magnesium and iron and a chocolaty flavour.
