Add the remaining ingredients, except coconut whipped cream. If using a high-speed blender, start blending again on low speed working up to high speed. Blend for 3-5 minutes, or until very hot. If using a regular blender, blend until smooth and heat gently on the stove or transfer to mugs and heat in a microwave.
Top with coconut whipped cream and cacao nibs.
Use caution when blending hot liquids. Be sure to let the lid vent so the liquid doesn't leak or splatter. Blend on low speed, working up to high speed until smooth.
The pear adds additional sweetness and makes the smoothie thicker, but it can be omitted for a thinner consistency.
The Medjool dates bring most of the natural sugar content. Use just one date for less natural sugar.
If you aren't able to find cacao powder, you can use 100% unsweetened cocoa powder instead.
