No sooner did I start singing the praises of “Maximum Vibrance” in my last smoothie creation for my “Superfood Smoothie Series”, my Raspberry Kiwi Smoothie, did I find out that there is a brand new version of “Maximum Vibrance” that was just released.
Being that Maximum Vibrance already contains “all known nutrients”, what else could they possibly add to it that would make it even more irresistable?
Yes, it’s true.
You can now enjoy your Maximum Vibrance with a chocolate flavor that, to me, has many, many possibilities.
And this Triple Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie is one of them.
I took the Maximum Vibrance – Chocolate, added raw organic cacao powder and raw organic cacao nibs to make it triple chocolate.
