There is nothing quite like a Cheeky Monkey to lift your spirits and get you moving. Cocoa is great for energy and mood and is high in antioxidants. It is being studied for its power to balance hormones, improves stress resistance and promotes fertility. With 20 grams of protein per 30-gram serving, HempPro 70 is a plant-based protein, offering all essential amino acids (great for athletes, vegans and vegetarians). It’s mild tasting with a creamy texture that’s delicious when added to your favourite smoothie recipe. Is that cheeky enough for you?
