Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and who doesn’t love to indulge a little? One of my newest obsessions is this Chocolate Cherry Smoothie. This antioxidant rich smoothie hits the spot when I am craving something rich, chocolaty and sweet!
But let’s talk about the amazing benefits of this sweetie pie of a smoothie!
I love using this power trio: hemp, cacao & maca
Navitas Naturals Protein Blend (at whole foods) is a simple, vitalizing chocolaty protein blend that is ideal for pumping up any smoothie with healthy organic power. In this superblend you get all the incredible protein, fiber and omega fats in hemp powder, the potent antioxidants and feel-good bliss chemicals of cacao, and micronutrients in maca that nourish and support the endocrine system. This combination offers a diversity of nutritional benefits that provide you with a balanced and sustained energy to fuel your busy lifestyle.
Raw cacao is loaded with phytochemicals that can reduce LDL cholesterol. In addition, the maca will give you that feel good boost of endorphins we get from this pure blend of raw ingredients.
Cherries also are loaded with vitamin C and as a good source of minerals, such as potassium iron, zinc, copper, and manganese. This sweet power fruit also helps relieve pain. So, have at it and enjoy this guilt free treat! Have a sweet day!
