Raw Cacao and Maca Breakfast Smoothie

I haven’t updated this blog for ages. A lot has happened over the last few months but surely the biggest change is that I am pregnant, expecting my second baby! This time we decided not to know if it is to be a boy or a girl so in few weeks time, we’ll be having a sweet surprise.

The initial months of pregnancy have been a bit tough but now everything is going quite well. I have tried to improve a lot my diet to boost my energy levels and improve health and mood in general.

Breakfast has become surely my main and favourite meal of the day and it always includes a fruit or veg smoothie like this chocolate-y one made with Raw Cacao  and Maca powder.

      Raw cacao is really awsome in smoothies, I do like it. I’ve also done some raw cacao and maca energy balls lately and they were amazing too. With no sugar, they are perfect for chocolate cravings. I’ll add the recipe soon. Thanks a lot for your comment!
