Posted by The Theo Team on Sep 25th 2022

A delicious on-the-go smoothie topped with crunchy, flavorful cocoa nibs.


This tasty, slightly tart smoothie is a great option when you're looking for a refreshing treat that's not too sweet and has a nice complementary crunch. You can substitute in favorite seasonal fruit and adjust tartness as needed to create your perfect sip.



Smoothie with fresh fruit and roasted cocoa nibs


  • ¼ cup chilled hibiscus tea (or to desired tartness)
  • 1 cup raspberries, cleaned
  • 2 cups strawberries, cleaned
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup guava juice
  • 2 tsp honey
  • juice from ½ an orange
  • 2-3 cups ice
  • 2-3 tbs Theo Roasted Cocoa Nibs


  1. Start by steeping 1 hibiscus tea bag in ½ cup boiling water for 4-5 mins. Remove tea bag and allow to cool, then refrigerate until cold. This can be made in advance and kept refrigerated up to a week.

  2. Add raspberries, strawberries, guava juice, half of the chilled hibiscus tea, banana, honey, and orange juice to blender. Blend until smooth.

  3. Add the ice, one cup at a time, blending thoroughly after each addition. Stop at two cups unless you prefer a thicker smoothie, then add the third cup.

  4. Pour into your favorite glass and top with Theo Roasted Cocoa Nibs.

  5. For an extra crunch inside the smoothie, blend a few tablespoons of nibs into the smoothie itself during the addition of ice.

  6. Add more hibiscus tea as needed to reach desired tartness level and garnish with fresh fruit.
