Energizing Cacao/Chocolate Smoothie

This chocolate smoothie is long overdue.  Chocolate is our favorite superfood-thanks to cacao. The bean of the cacao plant is the main ingredient of all chocolate and cocoa products. What makes it a superfood?  It is naturally rich in antioxidants, magnesium, iron, and fiber.  Cacao is low in calories and doesn’t contain any sugar.  We incorporated a date and some honey to naturally sweeten this deliciously energizing smoothie.  The flax meal and chia seeds offer additional fiber and staying power.  It's perfect for refueling and replenishing after a workout.   

Blend together…

  • 2 c ice, crushed
  • ¾ c vanilla almond milk, unsweetened
  • 2½ tablespoons 100% cacao powder, raw
  • 1 date, pitted, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon flax meal

~Blend until smooth and enjoy drinking super!
