Cacao-O-holic Smoothie benefits
Raw Cacao – in our eyes this is the UTLTIMATE ingredient! Completely unrefined RAW cacao (chocolate) is incredibly rich in anti-oxidants, magnesium, iron & potassium. Helps to guard against toxins, is a delicious mood booster and lifts your sense of well-being and on top of this it improves digestion, who’d have thought…
Dates – this goey, sweet dried fruit contains slow releasing sugars and is an excellent source of fibre, which is great for digestion. Full of minerals and surprisingly good for heart health.
