Chocolate Covered Almonds Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 bananas
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp pea protein
  • 1 packet almond butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Chocolate as detox? If that chocolate is cacao, then yes! Cacao (chocolate in its rawest, most unprocessed form) has more antioxidants and magnesium per serving than almost any other food, and sweetens things up without adding unnecessary sugar. Pea protein is a great way for vegans or those with sensitive stomachs to bump up their daily protein consumption (which is essential for everything from sustained energy to lean muscle), and almond butter bumps up that protein intake even more, while also adding a dose of healthy fat.

Love cacao? Try our Chocolate Pumpkin Pecan smoothie, or our Strawberries and Chocolate smoothie.
