Rich, smooth, and chocolatey goodness! This is my all time favorite smoothie for a mid-day energy boost. It is a super healthy smoothie packed full of potassium, magnesium, antioxidants and energy boosters!
I make it with coconut milk, however, almond milk would work well too. It is really important to use both: a room temperature banana and a half of a frozen banana to give it that smooth texture. Learn how to freeze bananas here.
Raw Cocoa powder for smoothies
Cacao contains the highest concentration of magnesium and antioxidants of any food on the planet! It is more frequently known as cocoa powder.
However there is a huge difference… the temperature in which it is processed & the additives. Raw cacao powder is fermented, sun-dried and pressed, so it never reaches a temperature above 114 degrees which helps to maintain its health benefits. It also does not have any extra additives, such as sugar.
Who knew you could get a rich chocolatey taste with zero sugars and it has been said to be a super cancer fighter!
Maca is by definition a superfood/powder grown high in the mountains plateaus of the Peruvian Andes. Raw maca powder can be tough to digest, so, I recommend the gelatinized maca powder which is easy and ready to use. Yes, it is a concentrated form made by extracting the starch, making the maca more digestible and the nutrients more bio-available for increased absorption.
I hope you enjoy this delicious chocolate, banana, and maca smoothie recipe!
