If you want to take a break from all things pumpkin-flavored this fall, there’s a spicy little number ready to take its place.
Introducing the Chile Mocha Shakeology.
This smoothie is like a zesty combination of Mexican hot chocolate and Mexican coffee — minus the tequila, of course.
We used cinnamon and ancho chili powder to give this delicious mocha smoothie an eye-opening kick!
Not a fan of spicy foods? Don’t worry, the heat of the ancho chili powder is mild. Blended into this creamy smoothie, it’ll wake up your taste buds, but it’s not going to make you sweat.
It also mellows the sweetness of Shakeology a bit, so if you’re someone who likes their drinks a little less sweet, give this smoothie a taste test.
Are you fully on board with the Chile Mocha movement, and want to wake up with this zippy beverage every morning?
You can take this recipe one step further: Blend 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon, 1 Tbsp. ancho chili powder, 1 tsp. paprika, ¼ tsp. cayenne powder, and ¼ tsp. sea salt; store in an airtight container.
Then, add ½ tsp. of this spice mixture to your Chile Mocha Shakeology smoothies and enjoy.

You’ll never guess the ingredient that Bobby adds to his recipe for extra creaminess and a boost of nutrition!
