Coffee & Cacao Wake-Up Smoothie
This is my new favorite morning shake. We've been making cold brew in the fridge lately, so I decided to throw it into a smoothie, and it's become my energy boost extraordinaire! It's also only five ingredients and takes five minutes to make, so why not?
Besides the obvious bit of caffeine from the coffee, cacao has tons of magnesium which naturally heightens your energy levels. It's also packed with antioxidants for glowing skin and age prevention.
1 banana (frozen is great but room temp is fine too)
3/4 cup cashew milk (you can use another non-dairy milk, but cashew is very creamy which I like)
1/2 cup cold coffee
1 Tbsp. raw cacao powder
2 Tbsp. maple syrup or agave
optional: top with cacao nibs and sea salt
Put everything into a blender and voila!
