Mocha smoothie made with JOYÀ Cacao Elixir Blend

This Mocha smoothie is the Aries smoothie from our Smoothie Horoscope collection. Aries are known for their firey passion, so you know this smoothie is packed with energizing goodness to fire you up and power you through your day. 

They say that coffee is the nectar of the gods - that it brings a sense of euphoria with every sip. You can be sure that this creamy, chocolatey smoothie brings all those good feels, plus a serious dose of nutrient-packed superfoods and functional foods. Coconut butter, cashews, flax seeds and oats fill your cup with protein, healthy fats and fiber to keep you happy and full, while rich espresso (or your coffee of choice) and the chocolatey goodness of our Cacao Functional Blend bring the magical Mocha element to the mix, along with stress supporting, calming and mood boosting herbs and mushrooms.

We may not all be Aries, but we'll all surely be very passionate about how delicious this smoothie is.
