CACAO KAPOW

This purely delicious power smoothie comes from Bella Clinton – the grand prize winner of our Healthy Chef “Spring into Health” competition.

In Bella’s words:  I have converted even the blokiest of blokes to enjoy this smoothie… after hours of surfing in the heat, my boyfriend, his mates and I are always thirsty, hungry and exhausted. So, bring on the CACAO KAPOW!!  Throw all ingredients into a blender, reenergise and revitalise with this delicious and nutritious smoothie. Hydrating and refreshing, it’s perfect after a long day at uni or work. The combination of cocoa, coconut water and berries gives you a nutritious energy kick up and it is  also ideal in the afternoon when you are craving something sweet and chocolatey!”

WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT IT

The addition of Healthy Chef protein can reduce fatigue and improve exercise performance, reduce muscle breakdown and facilitate healing.
