Nourish your body, mind, and soul with this citrus spiced chocolate smoothie. It tastes like dessert, but provides the body with a host of benefits like cancer prevention, reduced LDL cholesterol, improved immune system and better circulation.
You can enjoy this smoothie as a way to energize your mornings, or you can enjoy it for dessert as a substitute for less-healthy desserts on the market. It is packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and crucial phytonutrients, and tastes like a thick, creamy, chocolate malt with a bit of edge. I guarantee you’ll love it!
You can either choose to add cacao, or carob – cacao is slightly stimulating, so if you don’t like that effect on your body, then I suggest to go with carob.
