NOTES : This is a great way to use up bananas that are too ripe to eat. Just skin them and put them in a freezer bag and freeze them. You can use them frozen.
This breakfast is full of super foods. Flax seeds are well know for their omega 3's and also fantastic fiber. Chia seeds are also packed with omega 3's and full spectrum amino acids. Chlorella helps detoxify the body of heavy metals, is very high in protein and chlorophyll. It helps strengthen the immune system. Raw cacao is packed with magnesium and iron.
