Cacao Smoothie is my most recent addiction and including raw organic cacao powder in as many recipes as I can has been happening a lot lately. I knew cacao was good for you but didn’t really quite know how good until I started researching it. I mean can I really rationalize having cacao smoothies for breakfast? Well yes I can, and you can too!
Ten reasons why you can justify having a Cacao Smoothie for Breakfast or any meal.
If these ten reasons aren’t enough for you to justify adding raw cacao to your smoothie, you can read a great post with even more information on Raw Cacao vs. cocoa here on Nourish My Life.
You get more benefits from adding the cacao to your diet with raw foods, but it’s also still beneficial when adding it into other recipes that are cooked, just not as much as raw. I use it in my Banana Chocolate Muffins and my Grain Free Cacao Almond Butter Granola Bars, a recipe I hope to share soon. Meanwhile enjoy it in this Cacao Smoothie, guaranteed to make you an addict to something that has so many health benefits.
