Ingredients List:

  • 1 banana
  • ⅓ cup spring water
  • ⅓ cup Raw Cashews
  • 1 tablespoon raw agave
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao
  • ½ tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup ice
  • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
  • This recipe for a Banana Cacao Smoothie could also be considered a vegan superfood smoothie. There is no dairy and the chocolate is healthy. Cashews, which are called for in this recipe, are one of the creamier nuts and make a great replacement for any type of dairy milk or cream. This vegan superfood smoothie also calls for cacao. If chocolate is consumed in its raw form, that form of chocolate is healthy in moderation. In fact, many people consider raw chocolate to be a superfood.


    1. Place all ingredients, except cacao nibs, into a high-powered blender like a Vitamix.

    2. Start on low and then gradually take to high and run for 1-3 minutes or until the ingredients are completely blended.

    3. Serve and garnish with a banana slice (optional).

    Every sip of this Banana Cacao is super creamy and chocolatey. There is a lightness to the shake although the chia seeds and Cashews make it very satiating and creamy. This smoothie has the perfect amount of sweetness from the banana and agave balanced by the bitterness from the cacao.
