A Banana Cacao Pre-Workout Smoothie Recipe


Chocolate Smoothie with BananaThis energizing smoothie is made with banana and cacao powder for a rich tasting chocolate banana flavor.

With the addition of matcha, cinnamon, mucuna, whey protein and coconut oil it provides a potent boost of energy before weight training or any other kind of exercise where you need a lot of fuel for your body.

Why This Banana Cacao Smoothie is Great Before a Workout

Banana

Bananas are a healthy fruit, high in potassium, prebiotic soluble fiber, magnesium, manganese, vitamin C and vitamin B6. They do have a problem though — high levels of natural sugars.
