Looking for a new energy-jammed way to start your day?
We took all of our favorite super foods and came up with one knockout, power smoothie.
This smoothie is PACKED with health benefits from raw cacao, goji berries, mulberries and chia seeds.
Sweet mulberries are a great source of antioxidants, iron, calcium, vitamin C, protein and fiber, while chia seeds offer omega 3s, vitamin C and potassium. The chia seed is a complete protein, providing all the essential amino acids and also have the unique ability to retain more than 12 times their weight in water, helping you to feel hydrated and full all morning long.
Gone are the days where chocolate was off-limits. Raw Cacao Powder offers a ton of vitamins and minerals, namely zinc, iron, copper, sulfer, beta-carotene, zinc, chromium and magnesium. It also contains more antioxidant flavanoids than blueberries, red wine and even green tea!
Goji berries clock in with 500 times the amount of vitamin C of oranges plus 18 rockstar amino acids.
So what are you waiting for? Drink up!
