Cacao, pecan, pollen smoothieCreamy Cacao, Pollen Breakfast Smoothie

1 Banana
2-3 (soaked) dried dates. If you don't soak the dates you'll end up with bits. The soaking may also activate enzymes.
1 cup - 1 1/2 cold water, 1/2 cup ice (or to taste)
2 tbsp pecan butter or 1/4 cup pecans if you have a vitamix blender
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp hemp protein
1 1/2 tbsp cacao nibs
1 tsp bee pollen (test for allergy before first-time use, 1 grain under the tongue)
Few drops natural Vanilla essence

Add ingredients to blender and zoom! Oh btw if you don't have the best blender in the world add only 1/2 cup water at the start so all the 'bits' get processed then add the rest of the water/ice at the end.

3/4 cup ground seed mix. Must have flax seeds!
(eg Linwoods Milled Flaxseed, Sunflower, Pumpkin, Sesame seeds and Goji Berries. Or you can grind your own in a high speed blender)
1 tsp syrup eg argave, maple or date
1tbsp filtered water
1/2 tsp RAW coconut oil

Put all in mini food processor till mixed into a lightly sticky mass. If it crumbles add a bit more water, if its really sticky (add less water next time) remix with a bit more ground seeds
Tip onto baking parchment. Using the parchment flatten and shape it.

Peel off parchment and put on plate, it should hold together and peel away quite easily.
Top with fruit.
Add more syrup/crushed fruit if you want a dessert.
