|1 tbsp||Cocoa powder, unsweetened (add more if you like it more chocolatey)|
|2 tbsp hulled||Hemp seeds, shelled (or use coconut)|

|1 tsp||Vanilla extract, pure|
|1 tsp||Stevia sweetener, powder (optional)|
|2 tbsp||Walnuts (chopped)|
|1 tbsp||Cacao nibs, raw, Sunfoods|
1. Blend frozen banana, cocoa powder, hemp seeds, protein powder, vanilla extract and stevia (optional), in a high speed blender until smooth and creamy. Save some hemp for the final sprinkle.
2. Pour into a bowl and top with walnuts, cacao nibs and blueberries, or get creative with your own choice of toppings.
3. If you don't have cacao nibs, you can make syrup by adding cocoa powder, maple syrup with some coconut oil. Mix well and drizzle on top. Enjoy!
You can use your choice of protein powder.
If you find the mixture different to blend, add 1-2 tbsp of almond milk.
