Chocolate Coconut Macaroon

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz curly kale
  • 2 bananas - peeled
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup ice

A traditional French delicacy, macaroons are usually made with sugar, coconut and chocolate. This healthy version still has the chocolate in the form of cacao (chocolate in its rawest form, full of antioxidants, magnesium, and great for heart health and boosting mood) and coconut flakes (iron, calcium and healthy fat). We’ve added some nutrient-dense kale to up the fiber, folate and vitamin K, and bananas to give you a dose of beta-carotene, potassium and natural energy. The perfect pre-workout smoothie, treat yourself before working up a good sweat!

Crazy for cacao? Try our Chocolate Coconut Cream Pie with Cacao smoothie, or our Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake smoothie.
