Spicy Raspberry Cacao Smoothie

This smoothie is magical! It has a very particular taste as a blend of its ingredients and yet, you can still taste raspberries and cacao in it and they are not overwhelmed by hot chili. This is intentional.

Using the same ingredients, but replacing hot chili with fresh mint will give you an entirely different sensation. Add 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves and blend. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and enjoy whenever you need a clear mind. Mint seams to work quite well. Give it a try. 

  • raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 small hot pepper, chopped (seeds removed)
  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao
  • 1 ripe banana
  • coconut water
  • pinch pink Himalaya salt
  • 2 Tbsp raw argan oil ( use hemp or flax oil if raw argan oil is hard to come by)
  • 2-3 ice cubes if you are using fresh raspberries

  • Blend all ingredients until smooth.
  • Garnish with fresh raspberries and enjoy in good company!
