Cacao Brain Power Breakfast Smoothie
This has been my absolute FAV breakfast smoothie lately! And before I even get into the recipe I just want to say, I 10000% get that it looks GROSS. But can I just take a minute to emphasize that it just LOOKS that way?? This smoothie is my fav for a reason!! It is so tasty not to mention its packed with yummy vitamins and minerals, making it the perfect way to wake up and tell your body “I FUCKING LOVE YOU”

Cacao Breakfast Smoothie
– 1 Frozen banana
– 1 Mejool date
– 2 Table spoons cacao
– Big handful of spinach
– 1 1/2 Cup almond milk
– 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
Throw it all in a blender and enjoy!
If you're thinking - "a smoothie for breakfast wont keep me full!"
What if I told you that you could make your smoothie in a way that it would in fact keep you full!?
Heres a little way to tailor your smoothie to you! –
Make this smoothie the way the recipe says and then make a note of what time you get hungry that day! (before lunch of course! this is not a drag it out as long as you can suggestion!) If you find that you weren’t able to make it to lunch on this recipe then add a table spoon of coconut oil to your smoothie the next morning and try again! If you still find yourself hungry before lunch, add another table spoon of chia seeds! This is adding more calories of course, and thats the point! You are adding GOOD calories that your body can make EXCELLENT use of!
