Choco Peppermint Smoothie

Choco peppermint smoothie

Chocolate and peppermint – my favorite combination! This power smoothie is vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, keto and actually healthy.

Made with superfood ingredients, this will tantalize your taste buds and give you energy.

If you are like me and don’t drink coffee, I heavily rely on chocolate to give me the boost I need during the day. Not only does chocolate give you energy it is also packed full of nutrition!

In its raw form, chocolate actually has a lot of health benefits, here are just a few:

  • richest source of magnesium than any other food
  • keeps you fuller longer, thanks to the MOA inhibitors allowing more serotonin to circulate in the brain
  • has Phenylethylamine (PEA), an adrenal-related chemical created in the brain that is released when we are in love.  PEA also increases focus and alertness
  • high amounts of antioxidants – 100 grams of raw cacao powder has an antioxidant rating (ORAC value) of 100, 000 which is super high, compared to Acai berries which only have a ORAC value of 18, 500
