Love chocolate? Who doesn’t! This grounding food is something to be honoured– no longer does it have to be put into the “guilty” category, but it can shine in a “heck yes, I eat chocolate every day ” kind of way!
This nourishing Bone Broth Chocolate “Mocha” smoothie recipe is smooth, rich, decadent and chalked full of goodness that you can feel proud to fuel the whole fam with!
Banana & dates naturally sweeten this smoothie, providing potassium and fibre for healthy digestion
Cashews add protein and healthy fats for sustained energy
Cacao is rich in iron, magnesium, antioxidants, and help to produce mood-boosting neurotransmitters
Dandy Blend is the “mocha” component of this drink, and is my favourite coffee substitute for an adult taste without the caffeine, made with dandelion root for liver detoxing properties and chicory root to help manage stress
High-Vibe bone broth naturally contains L-glutamine, the most important amino acid to help heal, seal and protect the lining of your gut, improving digestion, absorption and assimilation of nutrients, while reducing inflammation. The health of your gut affects the health of all other body systems
Milk substitutes- Please make sure to buy organic, unsweetened, and carrageenan-free to stay with that gut-friendly goodness!
