Most people enjoy a quick burst of energy, especially first thing in the morning. A smoothie is a great way to do that, especially when you add the decadence and pick me up of chocolate and combine it with other known food based energy sources. Say hello to the cacao power smoothie recipe.


The purpose of this mouth watering smoothie recipe is to give you a quick boost of energy and a blast of quality plant protein to get you through your morning (or any other part of the day).

Full of antioxidants, magnesium, and beneficial fats, its a smoothie worth coming back to again and again.

Equipment Required
  • Good quality blender
  • 1 1/2 cups of sprouted almond milk
  • 1 banana
  • 3 tbsp of cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp of hemp seeds
  • 1 tsp of maca powder
  • Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
  • Whenever the desire for energy and chocolate hits you.
