Raw Cacao Banana Pineapple Smoothie (Sugar free, Vegan, GF)

This smoothie legit gives me superpowers.

I’m not even kidding! First of all, it’s got chocolate, which you can’t ever go wrong with, anytime of day. Not just chocolate, mind you. I discovered Raw Cacao powder, which apparently is different from Cocoa powder, its heavily processed counterpart. Raw Cacao is pretty amazing stuff!! It’s a superfood, rich in antioxidants, fiber, magnesium & iron.  The real reason I love it? The intensity of the chocolate flavor is amped up. You can really taste the bitter & strong chocolate, it’s got quite the kick.

And add to that tangy pineapple and tart strawberries & sweet banana…it’s perfection on the flavor scale.

Wanna hear something even more amazing? This smoothie is sugar free (zero sugar… it gets the sweetness from banana), vegan (I use coconut milk) and raw. Ideal as a breakfast smoothie or as a pick me up/snack anytime of day. Now this is one smoothie that’s got Mojo.
