Two 3.5-ounce packs frozen unsweetened acai puree, broken into pieces

2 tablespoons raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tablespoon coconut butter or coconut oil, optional

1 tablespoon raw honey

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk

Cacao nibs, for garnish, optional


  1. Combine the blackberries, acai puree, banana, cocoa powder, coconut butter if using, honey, vanilla and almond milk in a blender and puree until completely smooth.
