Chocolate Mocha No Moo – Day 5 – Seven Days of Smoothies

Chocolate Mocha No Moo - Day 5 - Seven Days of Smoothies Challenge

This smoothie is like a mocha milk shake without the dairy, and unhealthy sugar. Smoothies that taste so creamy and delicious and promote health are the way to go in my book! One of my favorite reasons for using whole food sweeteners like dates is the food is unrefined with all it’s minerals and fiber intact.

This smoothie contains Raw Cacao which gives it the rich chocolate flavor. Raw Cacao is a superfood rich in essential minerals and antioxidants. Eating raw cacao releases dopamine in the brain, a neurotransmitter that boosts mood and pleasure, and it has been shown to lower insulin resistance. Coconut Butter is a healthy fat that also gives the smoothie a creaminess, as well as the coconut milk. (You may substitute another milk like almond). A touch of cinnamon and vanilla compliment the coffee and brings out more of the chocolate flavor. This is a smoothie that I like to drink with my feet up, savoring every delicious sip!
