Cherry Cacao Smoothie

It’s no secret that I kinda love smoothies. I drink one most days as my breakfast or post-work out. This is my absolute favorite smoothie recipe. It is loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, protein and healthy fats. And, it’s freakin’ delicious and tastes like dessert!

Gather:

3 leaves of kale, stripped from stems

1 frozen banana

1 cup frozen cherries

2 tablespoons hemp seeds

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 teaspoon cacao powder

1 tsp cacao nibs

5 Brazil nuts (or 10 almonds)

2 cups water

Make:

First, add the water and kale to your blender and blend. Then add the seeds, nuts and cacao, put the frozen fruit on top, and blend. Serve with some hemp seeds and cacao nibs sprinkled on top if you want it to look pretty. This makes one large smoothie.
