Cacao + Almond Superfood Smoothie

Written by Holly Yates

This delicious cacao and almond smoothie is lovely and chocolatey, and packed full of goodness. It’s perfect to have when you need a healthy little chocolate treat.

This smoothie satisfies, from the mood boosting, antioxidant rich cacao, to the powerful almond with its abundance of healthy fats and minerals. Add a little maca, a rich source of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, and mood-boosting cinnamon.
