Chocolate Malt Superfood Smoothie

This vegan chocolate malt superfood smoothie is packed with antioxidants, vitamins + minerals, and it tastes like dessert.With just frozen bananas, maca powder, cacao, dates, and vanilla extract, you'll end up with an incredibly nourishing and satisfying smoothie. Thick, creamy, chocolaty, and malted in flavor, it's the best thing to happen to my morning breakfast routine in quite some time.

Servings: 1


  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 ½ tablespoons maca root powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder or 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 Medjool date, pitted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tablespoons water
  • Cacoa nibs (optional, for topping)


  • Add the frozen bananas, maca powder, cacao powder, date, and vanilla extract to a food processor. 
  • Begin processing and add in 1 tablespoon of water at a time to get everything moving. You want to keep the mixture as thick as possible, so be patient as the small amounts of water encourage the mixture to process. Process until a thick and smooth mixture forms.
  • Scoop the mixture into a glass and pile it high. Top with cocoa nibs, if desired.
  • Serve immediately with a spoon and a straw.
