Banana Cacao Smoothie

I’ve been loving cacao in my smoothies lately. Whether I’m tired or maybe had one too many glasses of wine the night before, it’s an instant pick me up when coffee (or matcha) aren’t doing the trick. While it doesn’t have berries or kale, this smoothie has enough boosters to make up for it. Coconut milk, banana and hempseed will give you major staying power to last you through even the most hectic of mornings. It’s incredibly nourishing and just happens to taste like a chocolate banana milkshake.
