Well I don’t know about you, but all that talk about Pressed Juicery’s delicious smoothies made me thirsty for something scrumptious from my own kitchen.

Enter – the super fast and super healthy Chocolate Shake Smoothie!

I adore this smoothie and make it for breakfast at least once a week.  Mostly I share it with my lovebug but sometimes when he’s not looking I drink both large glasses all by myself!  sssshhhhh…

    Delicious! This looks similar to one I make but I hadn’t thought to add maca powder or coconut water, thanks for the tips!

      I found the bottle in a wedding florist on Beaufort St (Highgate) during a random pink flamingo purchase (hehe, long story, Noni!).
      The glass straws were from an online company – I can’t quite remember which one but I know The Raw Kitchen in Fremantle stock them now. 🙂 x
