Simple & Rich Vegan Cacao Smoothie (Only Takes 2 Minutes!)

This smoothie is a beautiful and super-simple creation I made while traveling in the small island of Gili Air, next to Bali. A friend of mine gave me a delicious organic, cold-pressed cacao powder before leaving, and I just had to buy a small banana on the side of the road to get started.

When I blended all the ingredients — I know, I became such a nerd that I am now traveling with my blender — I found the taste so sweet that I started adding more and more cacao powder.

This cacao powder is from a very high quality that — as simple as the recipe may sound — I ended up with an unexpected incredibly creamy, rich and delicious result. I had to share it.

Ingredients (serves: 1)

  • 1 banana (make sure it's really ripe, so it's sweet enough to support the whole recipe)
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp. tahini (optional, but gives a nice finish)

Directions

Blend the all the ingredients in your high-speed blender until well combined and creamy.

Add more cacao powder if you'd like.
