Cherry Crunch Cacao Smoothie

Parsley Health
January 13, 2016

Today we’re changing up our usual morning smoothie with a decadent chocolate version.

Our cacao smoothie is just as packed with protein and healthy fats as our usual vanilla version. It’s a great breakfast , doubles as a perfect afternoon snack, and is totally reset approved.

We’ve been making this smoothie recipe at the Parsley Health office around the 3pm slump lately; it keeps our energy up, our brains focused for the rest of the afternoon, and our bellies full, which guarantees we don’t ransack the fridge when we get home.

Make it your own by adding a tablespoon of chia seeds for an extra boost of omegas, a spoonful of ashwaganda powder to help steady your nervous system, or a spoonful of maca for an extra boost of energy.

Smoothie recipe serves 1 for breakfast, 2 for snack

Chocolate cacao smoothie:

  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk or water
  • ½ cup frozen dark sweet cherries
  • 2 scoops chocolate Rebuild protein powder
  • ½ banana or ¼ avocado, optional (for extra creaminess)
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 3 cubes of ice


Pomegranate arils, frozen cherries, unsweetened, coconut flakes, cacao nibs + anything you have on hand!


Combine almond milk, cherries, protein powder, almond butter, cinnamon, ice and banana or avocado, if using, in blender and blend until smooth.
