Cocao Goji Berry Smoothie


My smoothie creating method seems to be, "oh I see that ingredient I like, now what else can I put in there?" And I have to say it seems to be working. There was no planning or measuring really with this recipe, all the ingredients combined perfectly together.

I've been having a love affair with cocao as of recently, and its what I really enjoy adding to my smoothies. It doesn't hurt that its also rich in iron, antioxidants, and magnesium either, but mostly I like the flavor. Especially when combined with my homemade almond milk, and some fruit!

If you're a lover of cocao, goji berries, coconut, and almond milk, well then, say no more, because  this smoothie was  basically made for you! Blend, drink up, and enjoy!
