- In a personal blender fitted with the grinding blade, purée the ice cubes, banana, avocado, almond and cashew beverage, cocoa powder, maple syrup, ground cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Pour into a large glass. Garnish with a cinnamon stick or cocoa nibs, if desired. Serve immediately.
Cacao nibs come from cocoa beans. The beans are roasted and then cracked into small pieces. With a slightly bitter taste, cacao nibs pair wonderfully with sweeter chocolate. You can find cacao nibs in certain fine grocery stores or at a chocolate shop.
