This smoothie is packed with many great health benefits and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients! Cocoa helps improves cardiovascular health and studies show that it could even help fight cancer. Bananas are very rich in potassium and can reduce menstrual pains.

.

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 scoop Madre Labs CocoCardio OR 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder OR 1 scoop of chocolate flavored protein powder
  • 1 packet of stevia
  • A few drops of cocoa bean extract
  • A few ice cubes
  • 2 oz. water or skim milk (50 ml.) (Give or take, depending on how good your blender is.)

.

Directions

Put everything in your blender and blend together until it has a smooth consistency. If you don’t want it to be so thick, just add some more water or milk.
