Quick, Easy, Nutritious & Delicious batidos are commonly enjoyed largely throughout Latin America but is a global delight as well! This particular batido has numerous health benefits and is equally as tasty! Enjoy as a morning boost, afternoon snack or as a refreshment for guests.

  • 1 cup of loosely packed hierba buena leaves, washed and patted dry
  • 10 ripe bananas
  • 2 cups of ice
  • 2/3 c. raw cacao beans
  • 6 stoppers of good quality Stevia
  • 2 cups fresh water

Simply gather all of your ingredients and prepare them for blending in a mixer of your preference, we used a Vitamix which is an ultra-high powered blender that works especially well for finely chopping up the cacao. It’s best to add the liquids you choose as the first ingredient then add all else afterwards. Serve immediately!
