After tasting the ZICO chocolate coconut water for the first time, I knew this sweet treat needed to find a home in a high-protein and hydrating smoothie. This three-ingredient coconut water creation plays up the chocolate flavor of the ZICO, but the smoothie is thickened up by a frozen banana and raw hemp seeds.
If you've never used these B vitamin- and omega-3-packed seeds before, this smoothie is the perfect way to introduce them to your diet.
