Years ago, when my grandparents hosted our family’s holiday dinner, not a single guest would leave without a Chocolate Orange. You know the kind you smack on the table to break apart the chocolate slices? Here’s a nostalgic smoothie perfect for Christmas morning:
- 3 small to medium mandarin oranges, peeled
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 serving Chocolate Vega One™ Nutritional Shake
- 1 Tbsp raw cacao powder
- 2 Tbsp cacao nibs + 1 tsp for garnish
- 2 Tbsp hemp hearts
- ¼ tsp Himalayan salt
- 1 cup almond milk
- 4 ice cubes
Add all ingredients to blender.
Blend until smooth.
Garnish with a sprinkling of cacao nibs (and maybe even a little Himalayan salt!)
