Coco Paradise Smoothie

Coconut and chocolate are already an iconic duo, and when they’re together in a healthy, nutrient filled smoothie, it just can’t get any better. 

This recipe uses organic cacao powder, which is considered a superfood as it improves blood flow from the heart to the brain. We also love throwing in some chia seeds for extra antioxidants and health benefits. The base is coconut milk, which enhances the coconut flavor and makes for a creamy, decadent smoothie. If you don’t have coconut milk on hand, you can use any dairy-free milk that you’d like.

If you’re feeling fancy, you can add a rim of melted chocolate, coconut flakes, almonds and cacao nibs. Simply melt some dark chocolate, dip the rim of your glass in it, set a bowl aside with your dry toppings, and dip the chocolate rim in the toppings. This is totally optional, but adds some texture and flavor, making this smoothie feel like a vacation in a glass, without the guilt of a sugary drink.



1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

1 scoop TRU Coconut Macaron protein powder

1 frozen banana

2 tbsp creamy almond butter

1 tbsp cacao powder

½ tbsp chia seeds


1 tbsp melted unsweetened dark chocolate

½ tsp almond slices 

½ tsp unsweetened coconut flakes

½ tsp cacao nibs


  1. Combine coconut milk, frozen banana, almond butter, cacao powder, TRU Coconut Macaron protein powder and chia seeds in a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Before pouring into a glass, melt dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and prepare another bowl with coconut flakes, almond slices and cacao nibs. 
  4. Once the chocolate is melted, give it a stir with a spoon and dip the rim of your glass in the chocolate, using the spoon to evenly coat the rim.
  5. Dip the chocolatey rim in the bowl of toppings, then pour in your coconut smoothie.
  6. Enjoy!
