Crazy for Cocoa Smoothies

cocoa smoothie

Morning’s are better with a bit of chocolate.

Oatmeal may seem like the healthier option, but believe it or not, cocoa powder is packed with health benefits of its own. Rich in antioxidants, this decadent sweet may help to reduce blood pressure, improve blood flow, and even boost your mood. So what are you waiting for? Not only is chocolate delicious, it’s also a healthy choice. Grab your blender and let’s begin.

Ingredients

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 frozen banana, sliced
2 pitted dated, chopped
1 tbps cocoa powder
½ scoop vegan chocolate protein powder (I personally like Hemp Yeah! It tastes like cake mix)
½ tsp cinnamon
 
To Top
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp crushed walnuts
½ tsp shredded coconut
 

Instructions

Baby let’s blend.

Toss the almond milk, banana slices, chopped dates, cocoa powder, protein powder and cinnamon in your blender. Press on and blend away!

When the ingredients are well blended, you can pour your smoothie into a glass and top it off with hemp and chia seeds, as well as walnuts and shredded coconut if desired.

Cheers!
