This Coconut Chocolate Almond and Banana Custard Smoothie ticks all the boxes. Each pouch of South Australian Gourmet Food Company Banana Fruit Custard with Added Fibre provides your body with 10.9g of dietary fibre. Adults needs between 25-30g each day and more than 70% of Australian adults are failing to meet this amount needed for health. Having enough fibre in your diet supports a healthy gut, heart health and stable blood sugar levels. It also helps you to maintain a healthy weight.

Coconut and cocoa add antioxidants to this smoothie which helps to protect your body from free radicals which can cause damage and disease to the cells of your body. Coconut is a great source of gut-loving fibre as well as vitamins and minerals.

Coconut is also a good source of magnesium which keeps your nerves and muscles working well. Also, phosphorous which is needed to create strong bones as well as iron which is needed to transport oxygen around your body and plays an important role in optimal immune system function.

Milk is a great source of protein as well as calcium which is needed for strong bones and teeth. Milk is also a great source of vitamin B12 and choline which supports the health of your central nervous system. Also, iodine and selenium help your thyroid to function at its best. Your thyroid makes hormones and plays a major role in the rate of your metabolism. Don’t miss out on the delicious taste and health benefits of this smoothie.
