Okay I have been arm twisted here so, I’ll let you in on a secret…Syl LOVES white chocolate and lately she is gaga about creating the ultimate chocolate smoothie. She is into smoothies and their health benefits. She even makes sure I am kitted out with a cool smoothie hit every morning…

Recently we went on a road trip and she replaced our usual crisps, chocolates, biccie, cakes, dried nuts and fruit snacks with a cooler, full of the most delicious concoction. She called it the Power Travel SmoothieI couldn’t agree more! Okay not in the beginning…There, I said it! Happy now

So, what could be more refreshing than a glass of chilled freshly squeezed juice? Well, how about a nice chilled glass of chocolate smoothie?

Really, chocolate and healthy in one breath? Pull the other one Pauli…Hang on a minute,

 

What Kind of Dark Chocolate Do We use in our Smoothies?

Well, apparently, we use raw cacao powder, You can get yours here. Its also known as Cocoa powder. But why the powder and not the store bought dark chocolate? I asked JulieSyl…Hm.

Syl says that according to her research, (aka Wikipedia…Ssshhh) raw cacao is one of the highest sources of antioxidants. It’s even more powerful than the green stuff…OMG as in green tea! Really! Don’t make that face! 😊  

Fact is its easier on the blender, and it does add a certain June cest qua. And of course, it brings the healthy and chocolate to this ultimate chocolate smoothie party!

Gosh, I am giving away the “new family secrets here.” Well, instead of milk, water, almond mink or

What is Coconut Water & Why in a Chocolate Smoothie?

Fantastic question! Coconut-water is a clear liquid found inside a coconut fruit! Pure coconut-water is packed full of anti-oxidants and potassium; great for bone health, keeping you youthful and fresh!

And don’t tell the kiddies, but it’s been the best way to get them to drink water…Like mother like kids huh! OMG I just committed hara-kiri lol!

Anyhoo, coconut water is way healthier than fizzy pops, sodas, colas, Ultimate Chocolate Smoothie - Coconut water lucozade etc! Hello Dentist!

 

Coconut-Water Fun-healthy Facts

Aids digestion – If you never had constipation you are lucky. And guess what frees your belly on exotic Caribbean vacations…Yup. all that coconut in your food. Now, coconut-water is not only hydrating, it clears your digestive tract as its easily absorbed in the body! And it tastes great so can be drank as your water…Hello children!

Mucho potassium – Why do you think Hussein Bolt runs like the wind…Seriously, apart from the self-confessed yam intake lol. We believe it’s some of that Jamaican coconut water. An excellent source of electrolyte potassium. This stuff helps prevent muscle weakness, lactic acid forming thus causing leg cramps, bone strength…thus great for sporty people!  

Fast Energy Boost – Yes Please, coconut does encourage production of energy in the body. Again, Sporty peeps love it and so do we. So, when we do our 2 days weekly fast, we take this super drink to keep energized and don’t feel hungry! (Ssshhh more family secrets, lol)

Antioxidant Rich – did we say anti-oxidants, so we keep the doctor away hurray! Thank you coconut-water for the natural antioxidants. So those baddies aka free radicals in the body are obliterated! Bottoms up anyone?

Thank you coconut-water for the natural antioxidants.Click To Tweet

Still on the fence about coconut water? I guess I have made a great case for it then. If in doubt, have maca root instead! 😊

And the other surprise ingredientDon’t Judge, am dishing the goodies so…It does give our delicious chocolate smoothies that thick consistency so they are not runny…

 Peanut Butter – What!!!

Not what you buy in your local grocery store, duh! Check what Syl discovered and we use in image below and go get some for your breads, dips, smoothies etc. It replaced peanuts with pumpkin, sunflower, and black sesame seeds woot! So be gone peanut allergies…
