This delicious, chocolate smoothie is a guilt-free indulgence. Banana and organic cherries provide natural sweetness. Maca is a terrific adaptogen, helping balance hormones and improve mood and energy. Plant-based protein powder helps you stay fuller longer. The coconut milk provides medium-chain fatty acids for energy. Raw cacao, possibly the highest source of antioxidants and magnesium of all foods, is hands down the star of this smoothie.
