Cocoa and Banana Destiny Drink

Do you ever feel bleary eyed in the morning?
When tired eyes need a wake up a lovely morning drink is close to hand!

Would you like to feel as fresh as a spring flower;-) ?
Light and blissful blue!

Here’s one way to greet the day with more energy!

For me, sipping Cocoa never really appealed, and then I discovered this whilst pottering around a favourite haunt, Luscious Organic. The drink is a combination of rice milk and cocoa – throw in some banana magic and we have a feeling food supping good sup!! Sure to make morning wake-ups an altogether different and more refreshing experience.

Despite being in denial for a some years I have come to accept that I’m not a mornings person, the night owl in me wins every time. However, a few things get me jumping out of bed in a light and care free manner.
  • -       Sunlight peaking through the blinds.
  • -       The smell of a cooked breakfast floating up the stairs.
  • -    Freshly baked bread.
  • -       The draw of a hot shower using my favourite shower gel from Le Source.
  • -       And of course this newly discovered dark beauty of Cocoa magic.
  • -       And of course Springtime and sunshine all year round!

I love this version of the Union Jack! - Very Seasonal ;-)
I’m also a tea-drinker and my Irish nose is drawn to all things that brew. Now with Spring flirting her lustrous way towards us, a cooler and more refreshing drink beckons.


And best yet, it really is a case of ready in minutes, so simple it’s happiness for sleepy heads like me – punctuality is given a heads-up and joy of joys you’ll have an extra bounce in your step. There are more anti-oxidants in a glass of this than in a cup of green tea!! So sip on and on....

The stuff of dreams
I love this with a slice of whole-grain toast, spread generously with cashew butter and sliced bananas, it will certainly keep your hunger at bay and leave you feeling lovely and light until lunchtime.

A few words of wisdom from the iconic Coco Chanel herself - 

"I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny."

Cocoa and Banana Destiny Drink
Delicious in a glass

Banana, 1 ripe sliced
Cocoa powder 1 flat tbsp
Sweet freedom/ or honey 1 tsp

ADD all of the ingredients into a blender and whizz.
CHECK for taste after a minute, you may want to add a drop more rice milk or sweeten a tad more.
WHIZZ again for good measure.
POUR into your favourite tall glass.
RELISH the freshness and beauty of each waking day.
