What doesn’t love chocolate? This week Go Raw Junk free foods is focusing on smoothies. So, I decided to make this decadent raw chocolate smoothie for my friends. They loved it!! It is a chocolate lovers dream and it’s amazing for your skin and your body. I used Raw organic cacao powder and Go Raw Super Chocolate. Cacao is high in antioxidants, which prevents cell damage, amazing for anti aging. Antioxidants, also help decrease inflammation that can contribute to arthritis and other diseases. Cacao is a great source of magnesium which helps ease muscles tension, support bone health and regulates cholesterol.
Magnesium also, helps to balance brain chemistry and tryptophan, an essential amino acid, plays an important role in the synthesis of serotonin, which also helps regulate mood and sleep patterns.
My buddy Keegan, professional model and actor and Kristina, Creative Marketing Director of B’Tyli Natural Skin Therapies ( in the picture above), loved these benefits and loved the taste of this rich and chocolatey smoothie. The Go Raw Super Raw Chocolate shavings made this smoothie, very elegant and gourmet. You can serve it for breakfast or dessert. Enjoy!
