Recipe: Chocolate almond smoothie

This nutritious chocolate smoothie makes the perfect on-the-go meal.


Although cacao and cocoa come from the same source, cocoa is processed with heat and offers little to no health benefits. Raw cacao is truly a superfood with more antioxidants per gram than blueberries. It’s one of the best natural sources of magnesium and boasts theobromine, a naturally occurring mood- and energy-boosting alkaloid compound.
