Raw Chocolate Protein Smoothie- For breakfast!

Raw Chocolate Protein Smoothie
1 cup cold raw almond milk
1 banana
1 TBSP raw cacao powder or cacao beans
1 TBSP flax seeds
1-2 TBSP hemp seeds
1 tsp bee pollen (optional)

1. Put ingredients in blender for 10 seconds and enjoy!

Chocolate in one of the highest consumed food products, however because the cacao is processed all the nutrients are destroyed. The cacao was so valued by the Mayan culture that cacao beans were used as currency. Cacao beans are the most chemical complex food sources in the world (which we know of!) This bean has the highest amount of antioxidants in the world (15x more than blueberries), and contains beneficial enzymes that your body requires for longevity. Just make sure the cacao you buy is raw and organic. The hemp seeds are loaded with protein, the flax is full of fiber and the bee pollen provides everything you need to survive in one little nugget. This smoothie will have you buzzing all morning!
