Cacao Banana Smoothie
This is just a classic smoothie. Everyone should make chocolate smoothies sometimes, and this is a great and easy place to start.
Brownie Batter Balls
A better question to ask than â€œwhat superfoods are in these?â€ is â€œwhat superfoods AREN'T in these?â€ A great (and flexible) recipe by Amber Shea Crawley, we love how quickly these chocolate treats come together.
Julie's Hot Chocolate
After requests at a holiday party, I had to put up my recipe for Hot Chocolate with Navitas' extra flavorful cacao powder. It's well balanced, rich, smooth, and just sweet enough.
Choco Maca Smoothie
This is among the most energizing superfood blends on the planet, so it's no wonder this smoothie is so popular. Coffee - who needs it?!
Chocolatey with just a hint of berry, these luxurious truffles are just divine, and the nutrition you'll amass by eating them is excuse enough to steal a second one.
Acai Athlete Smoothie
If you love the flavor of acai, clearly you're not alone! This popular recipe is great for both energy and sports recovery, and is a favorite amongst our fitness influencers.
Cacao Fig Fudge
Marni Wasserman owns an incredible cooking school in Toronto, and judging by the creative deliciousness of this recipe - we want to attend it!
Cacao Banana Flax Smoothie
With protein, healthy fats and antioxidants all tucked into a creamy chocolate base, this smoothie by Pooja Mottl is a keeper.
Crazy luxurious fudge packed with superfood goodness? It sounds almost too good to be true, and yet you're just 30 minutes away from experiencing the sweet magic of this easy combo.
Maca Maple Ice-Cream
This is one of my favorite desserts too, so I'm happy to see that it made the list of your â€œmost popularâ€ as well! Maca's malty flavor is really celebrated in this unusual yet utterly addictive smooth ice cream.
No Bake Fudge Brownies
Straight from my book Superfood Kitchen, this recipe is a complete game changer for any brownie lover. Ten minutes and only four truly healthy ingredients are all you need for this incredibly divine dessert.
Chocolate Energy Bites
Choosing Raw's Gena Hamshaw is known for her accessible, healthy, and trust-worthy recipes, and these wonderful bites are no different. Enjoy the power of hemp, cacao, and maca together with every nibble!
Chocolate Dream Smoothie
This is one of my favorite chocolate smoothie recipes of all time. Extra creamy and frosty, it tastes a little like chocolate-peanut butter, and has loads of beautifying nutrients for good skin and anti-aging.
Choco Maca Nana Shake
Another classic chocolate shake that takes advantage of cream-like cashews and sneaks in some extra vitamin C from camu powder.
Acai Berry Truffles
A berry-flavored truffle that is piled high with antioxidants of several varieties. A truly special and unique treat!
