If you want super power packed nutrition – then you need to try my chocolate smoothie. This makes a delicious healthy snack or light meal that’s perfect when you want to indulge in a little chocolate therapy. The addition of frozen chopped banana makes it smooth and creamy and I sometimes throw in other fruits that compliment and add extra nutrition such as frozen blueberries.
What it’s good for:
Cocoa is high in the antioxidants A C and E and magnesium that can help boost your immune system. Banana is a great source of potassium which helps to regulate fluid balance in the body and necessary for nerve and muscle contraction, it also provides quality carbs to help replenish glycogen – so this smoothie is perfect pre and post workout drink. My organic superfood is loaded with antioxidants and has a purely delicious taste of wild berry that will nourish your body with vitality. It’s a great nutritional boost to support a healthy diet. Addition of flaxseed or chia seed adds fiber and omega 3 for gut and cardiovascular health.
