Cacao/Peanut Butter Chai Bliss

Marcella Castellanos

This is my go-to breakfast smoothie when I need something fast, delicious and so satisfying to my tummy that I won’t need to eat until lunch. This is what I call my Power go to: Cacao/Peanut Butter Bliss.
And here’s what it contains: banana, almond milk, cacao powder, peanut butter, avocado, essential oil (optional) and ice. You can also add chia seeds for extra nutritional punch!
Because a banana has potassium manganese, vitamin C, fiber, biotin, and copper, that is already a powerhouse fruit to start the day. Cacao powder is considered a very high source of magnesium and antioxidants. It contains healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, minerals, carbs and proteins; and peanut butter has a fantastic combination of fiber and protein that keeps you full for a long time. Avocados, my favorite daily staple food is really a super food (as is cacao powder) with over twenty different vitamins and minerals as well as protein, fiber and heart- healthy fats.
The added bonus, but optional to give it a chai taste, is On Guard essential oil which contains the essence of cinnamon, clove, wild orange, eucalyptus and rosemary.
Cacao/Peanut Butter Chai Bliss (for 2)
16 oz. almond milk
1 medium banana
2 Tbsp. cacao powder
2 Tbsp. peanut butter
2 drops On Guard essential oil (optional)
1/4 inch slice of avocado
Put all of these ingredients in a blender. Preferably a high speed blender like Vitamix or Blendtec. Drink, enjoy, then conquer the day!

  1. Almonds are very healthy … however it has been reported that Almond milk actually has little almond meat it. Check for ingredients prior to purchase. Same with some peanut butter. Better to eat the raw almonds and peanuts.
