Cacao Coconut Smoothie
Smoothies with chocolate are the best.
This Cacao Coconut Smoothie is creamy, chocolaty, and only slightly sweet — using a combination of zucchini and banana — and a healthy breakfast option for busy mornings.
Adding our Essentials Shake makes this smoothie even more filling to start your day on the right foot.
What else can you have for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or a snack and feel good about yourself? Smoothies! This has become one of my go-to smoothies.
Coconut is the star of this recipe, giving the smoothie plenty of healthy fat, fiber, and flavor. Coconut butter is optional if it's hard to find. You can also use coconut cream instead of milk and add a 1/2 cup of cold filtered water.
Cacao and coconut truly taste like a dessert, so enjoy it!
