Nutritious, chocolate-y, zingy and oh-so tasty – yep this smoothie from @busy_bee_kitchen will make your tastebuds, let alone your body, dance! And the best part is that you can whip up this beauty in no time at all for a quick mid-morning treat or even breakfast itself.

You can’t tell by looking at it but this Healthy Mocha Smoothie has some pretty impressive surprise ingredients including 1/2 a frozen zucchini (wow!), our delish Sacred Blend coffee and some things you may not have heard of before like Lucuma and Maca.

Lucuma is a powder derived from a Peruvian fruit, packed with awesome nutritious super-powers such as calcium, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and can work as a low GI sweetener. Bonus!

The next ingredient is no fruit but made from a root that looks like a yellow beetroot. Yep Maca is a force to be reckoned with… in a good way. It’s full of goodies like anti-oxidants, a range of vitamins and minerals including Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Zinc and more! And its secret power is that it has been known to increase fertility, mood, hormones and energy.

With those amazing benefits in mind, why not whip up this delish Healthy smoothie, like right now!
