Got a sweet tooth? Trying to avoid sugary sweets like ice cream and milkshakes? You must try this nutritious and delicious smoothie!

Add all ingredients to your blender and mix well until thoroughly processed. You may add ice cubes to this smoothie if you want to drink it cold. Pour into a tall glass and serve. Enjoy!

1 cup cherries, pits removed
1 medium banana, peeled
2 cups fresh baby spinach (or other leafy green)
1 tablespoon cacao powder
4 to 6 ounces of filter water

Start by adding the liquid to your blender (I use a Vitamix), followed by the soft fruit.
Add the greens to your blender last.
Blend on high for 30 seconds or until the smoothie is creamy.
If you do not have a high-speed blender, grind cacao nibs in a coffee grinder or use cacao powder.

My recommendation is to think of cacao as an indulgence and use it occasionally, but not every day. Itís a fun food, but not necessarily a health food when taken daily, or in excess.

3. Acai, Blackberry and Cacao Smoothie

If you donít have raw cacao powder, you can replace it with unsweetened cocoa powder. Because acai spoils fast, the pulp is only available frozen. Seek out unsweetened varieties so you can benefit from all the health-promoting qualities without the added sugar.

1 cup frozen blackberries
Two 3.5-ounce packs unsweetened frozen acai, broken into pieces
1 frozen banana, broken into pieces
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups almond milk
1 tablespoon coconut butter or coconut oil, optional
1 tablespoon raw honey
Cacao nibs to garnish, optional

Add all ingredients to an upright blender and puree until completely smooth. The mixture is extremely thick and you may need to stop the blender and scrape down the sides to get it moving.
Pour into glasses and garnish with cacao nibs.
