Healthy Chocolate Banana Energy Smoothie


So, I don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing that I really miss when eating healthy, it’s chocolate!  Well, that is fixable with raw cacao! Raw cacao is chocolate before it goes through a ton of processing and a ton of bad ingredients are added to it.  It has a bitter taste, but when used in recipes with a natural sweetener, you can get your chocolate fix without the negative health effects.  As a matter of fact, raw cacao actually has many health benefits!  One of the ones it is best known for is that it is has more antioxidants than any other food – even blueberries!!!  The following pin lists some more of the health benefits this delicious ingredient can provide.


So, as I was sitting around craving a chocolate shake, I decided to whip up a smoothie with some raw cacao in it.  The result is DELICIOUS!  This smoothie is healthy, tastes amazing, and provides tons of healthy benefits and energy.  Let’s get to the recipe!



  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 – 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. almond butter
  • 1 1/2 frozen bananas
  • 1-2 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • pinch of stevia (optional)


Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth.




YUM – Chocolately goodness!  Enjoy! 🙂
