Mesquite Cacao


  • 1.5 oz swiss chard
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 avocado - pitted
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp mesquite
  • 1 date - pitted
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Mesquite–it’s not just for barbecue! The seasoning adds a nutty flavor that makes this smoothie taste like a chocolate milkshake. Did you know that cacao is among the best dietary sources of magnesium, which helps improve muscle and nerve function? Add a date for sweetness and Swiss chard for some essential vitamins and minerals. Banana and avocado make it creamy! (Save the other half of the avocado for the next smoothie on this menu…)
