Chocoholic Smoothie Recipe

The Chocoholic Smoothie Recipe

I love chocolate so when I decided to create a smoothie for that energy every entrepreneur needs, it turns out I used a lot of chocolate!

Smoothie ingredientsAs you can see, this smoothie has a lot of ingredients. It is yummy (but not sweet) and keeps me feeling full of energy for most of the day. I’m not a coffee drinker so this is my morning pick me up.


1 cup ice

1 handful spinach

1 teaspoon Ashwaganda Root Powder (also known as Indian Ginseng)

1 teaspoon Maca powder

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon (or 2) Cacoa (not cocoa) powder

2 tablespoons chocolate Hemp protein powder (I prefer Manitoba Harvest or North Coast Naturals)

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Several dashes of cinnamon

1 cup of chocolate coconut milk or enough to blend

Mix in blender and enjoy your smoothie!

You can add or modify ingredients as desired – some people like to add bananas or yogurt. Or, try a different protein powder. Personally, I find Vega and Genuine Health powder too sweet and chalky but you may love them.

As with all health supplements, check with your doctor before using Ashwaganda Root and Maca.

Cupcakes galore!

In less than 1 month, I have baked over 12 dozen cupcakes – for only 2 events!

Most recently, it was for my daughter’s 18th birthday.  She requested chocolate with mint frosting.

The batter was yummy and thick as I mixed it up (again in too small of bowl).  It seemed almost criminal to stir in 2 cups of boiling water to the mix however the result is always worth it!

Earlier in the month, I made 4 types for my grandmother’s 90th birthday celebration – lemon, red velvet with cream cheese icing, chocolate and vanilla.  The lemon cupcakes were a smash hit among the retirement home crowd!
