Cacao Almond Smoothie

This smoothie is like a rich and creamy treat with a hint of chocolate!

Cacao nibs have a chocolate taste but are not as sweet.  They contain magnesium, fibre, iron and antioxidants.  If you are used to milk chocolate these may be an acquired taste.  In this smoothie however there is just a hint of the chocolate, but if you prefer you can also garnish your smoothie with dark chocolate chips instead of the cacao nibs.

Hemp seeds are also a great addition as they provide Omega 3 fatty acids and protein.
