Wake Up Chocolate Smoothie

This is my favorite way to wake up in the morning! A cocoa-infused, refreshing beverage, full of nutrients that tastes like sweet ambrosia.

I don’t drink coffee so this kicks me into high gear. This smoothie is full of enough cocoa and nutrients that it energizes me for hours, in a much more stable way and healthy way.

Other great additions to this smoothie are up to you! Try spirulina powder, fresh berries, or coconut shreds.
