This Chocolate “shake” is everything you crave in a delicious chocolate milk shake but with the health benefits of a nourishing smoothie!
This is a super filling afternoon snack, rich in healthy fats, antioxidants, heart healing cacao, and refreshing mint providing deep nourishment for your body, heart, and mind.
This smoothie is naturally sweetened! We love to use dates as a form of natural sweetener, they literally are nature’s candy, adding a lovely candied flavor to any smoothie.
This recipe also calls for cacao powder, the medicine of the cacao is that it helps to repair the actual tissue of the heart. Have you ever heard that chocolate is good for the heart? Well, it's true!
We also love to add a handful of Brazil nuts and a teaspoon of hempseed. Both provide a high dose of healthy fats and antioxidants, and a creamy, subtle nutty flavor.
Add in a dollop of almond butter, almond milk, a few sprigs of mint, ice and wa-la! You have a delicious, healthy Chocolate Shake Yoga Girl style!
