'Black forest' smoothie - protein power

Combining rice and pea protein provides the complete protein package, comparable to animal derived protein. Rice is low in lysine, an amino acid which is important for growth and bone health. However pea protein is rich in lysine so that together they provide a complete protein package.

Serves 1
You will need

70g dark, sweet cherries
1 tbsp cacao + extra for sprinkling on top
1 tbsp pea protein
1 tbsp rice protein
200ml sweetened soya milk
1/2 avocado for extra creaminess (optional)
Cacao nibs to top

Place all the ingredients in a blender.  Blend, top with cacao and cacao nibs.
