This Get Up and GOGO Chocolate Energy Smoothie is a chocolate superfood drink that tastes better than coffee and is a perfect power boost for morning or afternoon.
This rich, delicious Get Up and GOGO chocolate energy smoothie gives a healthy power boost that is better tasting (and better for you) than coffee. Unlike some chocolate smoothies that have a weak or faint chocolate flavor, this one is robust, rich, and deeply chocolate.
My friend Marie told me about COCO GOGO. Since she is such a fabulous cook and foodie (go to this post to see her fabulous charcuterie board), if she recommends something, I’m buying it!
She texted me from William’s-Sonoma with a pic of the COCO GOGO and a heads up that it was fab (and on clearance). I ran to William’s-Sonoma a few hours later and was told that a pretty blonde had just purchased all that was in stock (LOL~thanks, Marie:-). I ordered some immediately here on amazon, however, and got it in two days.
It took me about a week to experiment with ingredients to finally concoct my favorite smoothie, but this one is it. It is rich, chocolatey, not too sweet, and gives me a fab energy boost that doesn’t follow with a caffeine crash.
COCO GOGO? This smoothie mix made by Essential Living Foods contains organic, non-GMO, vegan gluten free ingredients.
The energizing component of COCO GOGO comes largely from guarana, which comes from the berries of a plant grown in the amazon regions of Venezuela and Brazil. Read more about the health benefits of guarana here.
Hazelnut Milk: I use Elmhurst Milked Hazelnuts that is in most grocery stores. There are 11 hazelnuts in every glass and no thickeners or emulsifiers. There are some almonds in this milk, but the overall flavor is hazelnut.
This COCO GOGO smoothie recipe really is one of my new favorite things, and I’d love to hear from you if you try it! If you tweak it, I’d love to hear from you also. As always, thanks so very much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
