Just tried this new combination of ingredients and found it makes a great and very filling smoothie–the kind of thing that will be enough for breakfast.

1 banana

7-10 raw cocoa beans

2 tbsp. Nutiva brand Coconut Manna (pureed coconut, basically)

1 tbsp. almond butter

1 tbsp. ground flaxseeds

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

A few ice cubes

Put all ingredients in the blender. Blend until desired consistency is reached.

Sweet, rich, and delicious! Plus, super good for you–lots of fiber, antioxidants, and immune-building compounds.
