During our raw food cleanse we ate a lot of raw cacao. We should have known that "raw chocolate" is too good to be true. We eventually figured out that we shouldn't be having it everyday because it was making us a wee bit too hyper, so we started substituting dark roasted carob which basically tastes the same.
But today was different! I broke out the bag of raw cacao and made myself a green chocolate monkey inspired by the Laughing Vegan's Green Monster Smoothie.
What's in it??
7 (ish) leaves of organic green swiss chard (ripped off the stems)
2 frozen bananas
1 fresh banana
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp raw cacao
1 tsp reishi mushroom powder
1 tbsp lucuma powder (other sweetener of choice like stevia or some kind of syrup)
1 tsp vitamin C powder
1/2 cup water
Blend it up and sprinkle with more hyperness! (cacao nibs)
