Smoothie King Cocoa Cashew Smoothie

IMG_1655

Smoothies make great breakfast drinks or post-hike refreshers. Add a scoop of protein powder as well, to encourage your muscles to rebuild after an intense day.

Joe Wong, founder of the Vancouver Rock Climbing Group and the awesome nonprofit group Climb and Conquer, is also known for making great smoothies. In 2012 he won the smoothie competition at a local organic market, forever crowning him The Smoothie King! Here’s the smoothie he enjoys every morning:

Ingredients

1 cup unsweetened soymilk

½ cup raw cashews

1 cup frozen mixed berries

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Mix all of the ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Tiffany’s Smoothie King Inspired Banana Shake

I started making this smoothie after being inspired by Joe’s recipe:

Ingredients

3/4 cup unsweetened soymilk

1 banana

2 tablespoons peanut butter

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

It’s like a chocolate shake, without all the guilt!
