'This is one of my favourite smoothie recipes because it’s packed with all the healthy stuff, yet it tastes absolutely decadent. You won’t believe you can have it on a detox or a cleanse! It’s also rich in fibre and additional probiotics, thanks to my Super Scoop, an organic plant-based drink mix, which makes it a healthy, filling breakfast on the go.'

1 heaped tablespoon pumpkin / sunflower seeds
1 heaped tablespoon goji berries
1 teaspoon raw cacao
2 tablespoons pea protein powder
1 scoop Super Scoop Raw Cacao or Very Berry flavour
½ frozen banana or regular banana
A few blocks of ice
1 cup coconut water (no additives; you can also find coconut water in the bottom of coconut milk or cream tins when the cans have sat and not been shaken)
Sugar replacement (recommended: xylitol syrup)

Pop all ingredients into a blender and blitz, until you have achieved the desired consistency.
