#1 Heavenly Chocolate
This is a rich chocolate delicious smoothie that is filled with healthy and filling benefits!
- 2 cups coconut water (fresh is a little nuttier!)
- 4 Tbsp Raw Cacao (benefits here) (substitute: cocoa, unsweetened)
- 1 Tbsp Maca (learn more)
- 1/2 -1 Tbsp Dandy Blend ( a coffee alternative with over 50 trace minerals and no caffeine!) learn more (substitute: brewed coffee or leave out)
- 1+ Tbsp protein, vanilla is best ( I use pea protein)
- 3 Tbsp Pumpkin puree, always grab the organic kind!
- 2 Tbsp Nut butter (almond, peanut, cashew, any! grab the one with NO added sugar)
- 2-4 Brazil nuts (meet your selenium needs) learn even more (3 ways!)
- 4 dates (benefits)
- 1 banana, frozen is my favorite for smoothness.
- 1-2 tsp vanilla
- stevia, maple syrup or honey if you want it a bit sweeter.
cinnamon is also a good addition. sometimes I just forget and it is good either way! this morning I added 1/4 of an avocado. There are so many options.
Give a whir in your Vitamix until smooth and enjoy.
#2 Chia Ginger Spice Latte
- 1 cup brewed Rooibos Chai tea (like this)
- 1/2 cup Almond or Coconut Milk
- 2 Tbsp Almond butter

- 1/2 tsp vanilla (or more !)
- Honey, Maple syrup, Stevia to tase
Optional: add a scoop of your favorite protein powder for protein punch!
Put all in a blender and whir until smooth. Drink warm or cool.
Vitamix is the best if you are looking for a good one…or if you just want a multi use blender that ROCKS!!
