This to-die-for smoothie from our friend and Holistic Health Coach Nikki Jahnke is everything that a great smoothie should be: all the pleasure of your favorite dessert, and all the nourishment of a perfect breakfast (or post-workout snack). In Nikki's own words, "If you add cacao nibs to a chocolate cherry smoothie, it's basically like Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream." And we can get on board with that :)
Packed with fibre, vitamins and minerals, including potassium, calcium and vitamin A, and featuring a double dose of cacao from chocolate protein powder and our adaptogenic Cacao functional blend, you're going to want to add this beauty to your smoothie game!
