Chocolate Almond Smoothie

For me when the temperature drops making a frosty smoothie is the farthest thing from my mind.  But this creamy chocolate smoothie is just right for these colder days and is full of healthy antioxidants and vitamins.  Adding ice cubes is optional and will make the smoothie a bit colder but not frosty.

What a great way to start the day and your body will love you for it so enjoy !

Raw cacao powder contains more than 300 different chemical compounds and nearly four times the antioxidant power of your average dark chocolate – more than 20 times than that of blueberries. Protein, calcium, carotene, thiamin, riboflavin, magnesium, sulfur, flavonoids, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids are also present. The precise blend of all these elements combined serve to kick in naturally occurring phytochemicals that have incredible benefits throughout the body, such as lowered LDL cholesterol, improved heart function, and reduced cancer risk.
