Why you'll love this Mocha Protein Shake

There are those people who are always surrounded by at least 5 bottles or cups of beverages and those who are satisfied with one. Well this goes out to those who love to jam pack everything good into one single drinking vessel. Hydration. Adaptogens. Caffeine. Protein. Easy. This one has it all.

  • Milk: regardless of whether it's a dairy-free option or not, this helps to not only blend the ingredients together smoothly but also provides hydration for your body, which is something everyone needs at any time of day.
  • Protein: whether plant-based or not, helps keep hunger at bay and energy up and delivers amino acids, the building blocks needed for muscle repair, hormone synthesis, proper digestion and more.
  • Coffee: for caffeine, antioxidants and rich flavor (or you can use an herbal alternative)
  • Calm Cacao Superblend: for nervous system calming, immune and stress supporting goodness featuring Reishi, Mucuna Pruriens and Maca.
  • And optional but highly recommended: chia seeds and dates for extra fiber, healthy fats and a touch of natural sweetness.

With only a handful of ingredients which are (most likely) already in your pantry, this protein mocha superblend is all-in-one perfection in a glass. Happy sipping!
