What tastes like a dessert, helps you lose weight, builds bones and is ultra healthy for you? A cacao smoothie!
I believe it’s important to get as many greens in to your diet, and if you’ve been reading my blog through the years, you know smoothies are one of my favorite ways to drink and digest my greens (besides green juices). I drink a smoothie everyday. I’m also a salad lover but let’s be honest, how many salads can you eat in a day to get all the greens your body needs for impeccable function? Too many! You’d be chewing like a cow all day long to get all the greens you need to fuel your cells. That’s why blending, drinking and enjoying them in a smoothie is the perfect, fiber rich way to add greens to your day.
Cacao is full of antioxidants to keep you looking and feeling your best and taste amazing in this smoothie. Also, the tahini in the cacao smoothie is a great source of calcium and gives the smoothie a nice thickness. The banana gives you potassium so it’s great for an after workout snack or meal.
1 ½ cups water or dairy-free milk
1 cup spinach
1 cup mixed greens
2 tablespoons raw cacao
2 tablespoons tahini
Dash of ground cinnamon powder
Blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender. Enjoy!
