Cacao Cookie Dough Smoothie….

a creamy, dreamy way to start your day. And you’d never guess there’s a whole serving of veggies in here….

Cacao nibs are a fabulous way to treat those chocolate cravings – packed with fiber, magnesium, iron, and antioxidants, with a deep, dark chocolate crunch!

And what’s better than using protein powder in a smoothie is getting protein from whole foods, i.e. the chickpeas. A wonderful plant-based source of protein & fiber, two main players that contribute to satiety (aka feeling full & satisfied).
