Health Benefits of Cacao in a Smoothie

Cacao powder is packed full of magnesium, iron, and flavonoids that can help lower blood pressure and improve HDL (good cholesterol) numbers. Cacao is a critical ingredient in SmoothieBox's Cacao Super Smoothie, which tastes like "…a chocolate-covered banana" when blended with water or milk.

Benefits of Peanut Butter in a Smoothie

Peanuts contain some fiber and are a good source of potassium. They also have a saturated to an unsaturated fat ratio that is almost as healthy as olive oil. Peanut butter is a healthy and delicious source of protein when made without added sugar or oil. With 4 grams of protein per tablespoon, adding peanut butter to your smoothie makes it creamy, tasty, supports your muscles, and it can help you feel fuller longer.


Peanut Butter & Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 SmoothieBox Cacao Super Smoothie pouch
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of peanut butter
  • 1 ½ cups of coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon of raw, unfiltered honey
  • 1 ounce of dark chocolate (optional)

Instructions

  • Blend one SmoothieBox Cacao Super Smoothie pouch with coconut milk, peanut butter, and honey until thoroughly combined.
  • Pour the smoothie into your favorite cup.
  • Drizzle peanut butter over the top and garnish your smoothie with strawberry slices (optional).
  • Grate one ounce of dark chocolate over the top (optional).

Pro-Tip

If the honey touches the mixer's side, it tends to stick to the walls and take longer to mix into your smoothie. To avoid this, add the honey to your blender last and add it to the middle of the ingredients.
