I am so thrilled to have come up with this super energizing and cooling shake!
Seriously, just try this and I promise – you will never bother to reach for a milkshake or Frappuccino again.
- 1 ½ cups almond milk
- 1 cup spinach
- 2 tbsp cacao powder (raw is best)
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- leaves from 5 stems of mint
- 5 drops liquid stevia
- 1 tbsp cacao nibs
- 4 ice cubes
- Blend the first six ingredients until smooth.
- Add in the ice and blend until crushed, then add in the cacao nibs and blend for few more seconds. You want the nibs to give you the “chocolate chip feeling” in the shake, so don’t crush them completely. Maybe you also would want some cream at the top…
Cacao is in fact the highest antioxidant food on the planet with tons of magnesium, chromium, iron and manganese… and most importantly – it’s totally delicious! Chocolate can improve cardiovascular health and helps build strong bones. Bonus point: chocolate leaves us feeling good too – it is both an aphrodisiac, a mood and an energy enhancer.
