This “milkshake” is Kula Baby’s new favorite summer treat.  He thinks he’s getting some sort of chocolate-flavored ice cream and I’m in no hurry to tell him otherwise.  This smoothie is a perfect blend of protein and sweet.  It’s also so refreshing on a warm summer day.  The ground flaxseeds offer brain-building omega 3s (remember to grind them just before adding to the smoothie) and the raw cacao powder provides a big helping of antioxidants.

And the best part…it ALMOST tastes like ice cream!  Enjoy!
