When I was in Seattle last year, I tried a smoothie at Chaco Cayon Café that I had to replicate at home (it wasn’t enough to eat it every single day on my trip. It was a delicious, thick, chocolately smoothie and tasted like a milkshake.
I’ve made my version with a few more foods I like to include in my daily diet. The addition of maca adds a nutty flavor and the cacao makes it perfectly rich. It is also filling, and a great pre-workout (or bedtime) snack. I’m pretty sure I
drink eat it as dessert. It is my comfort food.
While the Chaco Canyon smoothie had some added sugar, this version, the Cacao-Maca smoothie does not. And it doesn’t need it. It is a must make today sort of recipe.
1 T Cacao Powder
1 t maca powder
1 c raw hemp milk
1 banana (frozen makes for a think, creamy and cold smoothie)
1 t vanilla
Blend. Enjoy. I even add some spinach some days, and it is still oh so delicious!
