When you feel things are getting away from you and need a moment of calm, why not make a quick and simple Chocolate and Banana Smoothie, to help sail away the stresses and calm the anxiety so you can re-focus and get on with things. Did you know that when you have moments of anxiety, you can potentially drop IQ points, thereby making irrational decisions and having a confused state when you find you put the milk in the cupboard and the cereal in the fridge, or wonder why you have walked into the room. This drink helps stimulate from the dark chocolate which has caffeine and theobromine - a stimulant, however the banana and peanut butter helps lowers the cortisol thats released. A great way to start the day.
