Here is my son, enjoying a delicious chocolate smoothie with a very cool, environmentally conscious Strawesome decorated glass reusable straw.
The chocolate shake is made by throwing into my Vita-Mix blender the following ingredients and blending until smooth:
1 T. raw cacao
1/2 organic banana
1 c. almond milk
1/2 c. coconut water
1 tsp. maca
2 T. sprouted powdered chia
1 T. NOW brand non-GMO lecithin
about 6-8 ice cubes
At the end, I add the following ingredients and gently blend:
1 scoop Sunwarrior rice protein powder
1 T. cacao nibs for crunch!
Make sure you do don't over-blend, as it will adversely affect the protein and make the cacao nibs disappear completely!
This is super delicious and nutritious, great for breakfast or a snack after a workout.

Can you see the intelligence in those eyes? This little guy has figured out how to open doors and escape from rooms he no longer wishes to inhabit! I wonder if that is how he and his brother ended up in an animal shelter? He jumps up to pull down on the handle until the door swings open.
