Here's another recipe from FMTV. This green smoothie tastes just like mint chocolate chip ice cream - sans bloating and sugar overload.
(use organic ingredients where possible)
Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.
Why it's so good for you:
One of the star ingredients in this smoothie is raw cacao. Raw cacao offers amazing health benefits for your entire body!
Cacao is one the healthiest foods you can consume. Cacao contains the mood improver anandamide - known as the bliss molecule - which creates a feeling of euphoria. Another mood-enhancing compound found in cacao is PEA or phenylethylamine, which triggers the release of endorphins and pleasurable opium-like neurochemicals.
It also helps to protect you against heart disease, prevents premature aging, boosts energy, prevents sunburn, helps improve brain function, and helps improve your metabolism.
