Chocolate coffee shake recipe

Who doesn’t enjoy their morning coffee? You’ll love this, too. Cacao is packed with antioxidants and is one of the highest sources of magnesium.

Magnesium is extremely important for many biochemical reactions in the body including converting food to energy, creating new proteins from amino acids, and supporting muscle contraction, just to name a few.

  • ½ tablespoon Onnit Emulsified MCT Oil, mocha
  • ½ tablespoon cacao powder
  • 4 ounces chilled coffee
  • 4 ounces unsweetened almond milk

Personalization tips

  • Lighter, recovery-focused day: Swap the date for a handful of fresh spinach. This will cut down the extra carbohydrates a little and add that extra punch of antioxidants to support a recovery day.
  • High-intensity workout: During high-intensity exercise your body may use more of your magnesium stores, so try adding a full tablespoon of cacao powder to help replenish the losses during your workout.
