3/4 cup Yoso Unsweetened Almond and Cashew Yogurt

Quick Tips

  • For a sweeter drink, you can add 3 to 4 pitted dates and blend for 1 minute.
  • Using a frozen banana makes the drink cold and extra thick, but an unfrozen banana works well too, just add ice cubes for a colder thicker consistency.

Nutrition Highlights

  • Cocoa Powder is a source of protein and dietary fiber and contains iron and magnesium (cocoa is high in saturated fat so limit consumption).
  • Bananas are high in potassium and low in sodium and may help to lower blood pressure.

    If you are going to try banana, make sure it is green tipped and freeze it for better consistency. If not banana then simply add 1/2 c frozen berries in its place.Add 1 -2 scoops vital proteins collagen. Feel free to add ice for thicker consistency.
