This is my favourite smoothie to have when I am craving dessert but want to stick to something a little better for me. It is also great post-workout with an added scoop of vanilla protein powder.

I always try to top my smoothies with something crunchy to remind me to chew my smoothies which helps stimulate better digestion and aids your bodies absorption of all those wonderful nutrients you are putting in your smoothies. Sliced nuts, whole-grain cereal, granola, or some extra fruit are all great toppings.
