For this smoothie, we’re partnering with Gotham Greens, a New York company that grows all its produce in pesticide free, ecologically sustainable, 100% clean energy greenhouses – basically, it’s the freshest, cleanest lettuce you’ve ever had! When cacao beans are roasted and ground, they become cocoa, but if they’re slowly dried, they’re remain cacao, the rawest form of chocolate there is. Cacao is extremely high in antioxidants, and is often used as a natural mood elevator. This healthy version of a chocolate shake also contains mint in its natural form, which is known to help with digestion and give a little boost to your energy. Pro tip: Add the cacao nibs at the end and blend for a few seconds to give the smoothie a chocolate chip crunch.
