Oh. My. Gawd. You HAVE to try this! Completely stolen from inspired by HEAB, I wasn't sure what I fancied for breakfast this morning but after reading her blog post I just had to try this!
- 1 scoop chocolate whey powder
- 2 tsps cacao powder
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp Xanthan gum (ideally 1/2 tsp Guar gum but I can't get hold of any here :( Both make the smoothie really thick and creamy but using the Xanthan gum alone still gives a good thick and creamy result!
- 200ml hazelnut & almond rice milk
- handful of ice cubes
Blend everything except the ice until smooth, then add the ice for a final blitz, and serve! I topped mine with a blob of greek yogurt and some Maple Spice Pecans.

Big for breakfast but I ate late so wont be having a morning snack, and I had to stop half way through for a break!
