Got a sweet tooth? Trying to avoid sugary sweets like ice cream and milkshakes? You must try this nutritious and delicious smoothie! It tastes more like a dessert than a healthy smoothie and it will naturally boost your immune system and energy levels. The cacao powder (I love the kind from Navitas Naturals) gives this smoothie a nice flavor while adding a powerful punch of free radical fighting antioxidants, energizing iron, and heart-healthy magnesium. The bananas are a good source of vitamin B6, vitamin C, potassium, and dietary fiber. Strawberries contain vitamin K, magnesium, manganese, copper, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, folate, vitamin B6, potassium and vitamins B2 and B5. Just be sure that you are selecting organic strawberries because they are one of the most heavily pesticide-sprayed fruits. Give this fabulous smoothie a try today!
