Mood-boosting cacao smoothie - sweet and delicious smoothie filled with mood-boosting ingredients like almond, banana, cacao, and maca powder!


  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • 1 scoop plant-based vanilla flavor protein powder (optional, see note)
  • 1/2 - 1 cup ice


  1. Place all the ingredients in the high-speed blender and blend until everything is smooth. 
  2. Enjoy right away.


  • Protein powder is optional here but I recommend putting them in your smoothie as it thickens the smoothie and also makes it sweet. If you are not putting protein powder, I'd add more dates and less ice to make it a sweet and thicker consistency.
