Cacao, Kale and Banana Smoothie

Good Morning Everyone!!! 
Although breakfast is my favorite meal, lately i've been finding it difficult to come up with new and exciting recipes for the morning time. Luckily, I concocted this incredible green smoothie recipe! One of the main ingredients that makes it taste so unique and delicious is the raw cocoa powder. Natural, unsweetened cocoa powder is considered a superfood, contains many antioxidants, and gives you a natural source of energy! I use a brand of cocoa powder called "TerrAmazon" and I buy the "Organic Cacao Powder with Maca". "Enjoy. 

p.s: DON'T be afraid of the kale in this smoothie, you can't even taste it as a result of all the other delicious stuff in it! 

1 frozen banana 
1/4 cup frozen blackberries
1/4 cup frozen mangos 
1/2 -2/4 cup organic chopped kale 
1-2 organic medjool dates (pitted)
1 tbsp of cacao powder 
1 tbsp of ground flax seed 

Directions: Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender (I recommend purchasing a vitamix). Then, simply sit down and appreciate the wholesome ingredients that you're about to consumer :) 

Sorry...it's backwards.
