2 tsp* raw cacao beans (ground) or cacao nibs work too
you can experiment with this amount to see if you like more or less, this is about right for me
2 large cups of mixed fresh or frozen berries
Rice milk (a couple cups, see directions bellow)... can use milk substitute (milk, soy, etc)
1 banana
honey to taste


Add Cacao beans or nibs to coffee grinder, or blender, and grind them to a somewhat fine powder.

Add powder & frozen berries to blender ... cover them with rice milk. blend.

Add banana and a little more milk (or yogurt) if you like.

Add honey to taste, optional... will balance out the slight bitterness of the cacao.

Blend and enjoy. Makes enough for a big glass, or two smaller glasses.

Sometimes I also add a dash of cinnamon. YUM!
