Ladies and gents: Meet the Cacao Mint Chip Protein Smoothie. Just a couple quick fun facts about the mighty cacao bean to get you all excited n’ stuff: 1. It’s one of the most antioxidant rich foods on the planet. 2. In its raw form (= “nibs”), Cacao is unprocessed and does not contain any sugar. 3. It contains over 300 compounds including fiber, iron, magnesium, AND a “bliss” chemical that has a unique resemblance to TCH (don’t worry, you won’t get a buzz. But expect a good mood.)
These protein pancakes are crepe like and add a nice protein punch with the benefits and cherry and chocolate to help with any sweet cravings you may have!
Smoothies are an excellent way to seriously pack in a ton of nutrition! Just look at this ingredient list...it's a bit long, but for a moment, imagine sitting at a table eating each ingredient individually. You'd never think to eat spinach for breakfast, or be downing a spoonful of a superfood like spirulina, would you? This also has potassium and electrolyte rich coconut water as part of the liquid base, along with more potassium found in the banana. The list of benefits is MAJOR. Especially if you are working out a lot, this protein and nutrient rich smoothie will help give your body the fuel and nutrients it needs. And - totally free free to mix this one up a bit as you get the hang of it. We like adding things like apples (skin on), frozen pineapples, avocados for extra fat and creaminess, etc to our smoothies too.
