Notes

I prefer my smoothies super cold with lots of ice. You may too! //  I used So Delicious Lite Culinary Coconut Milk (can be bought online, sold at whole foods too) or canned coconut milk thick or lite. //  If you don’t have cacao, you can use cocoa – just increase the amount by ¼ tsp. // If you don't like my milk of choice you may swap it for your choice of plant based milk.  //
