Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie

If you like chocolate-covered strawberries, you’re going to love this smoothie recipe. I’ve been craving chocolate lately, and this really hits the spot without being too rich or heavy. There’s nothing like healthy chocolate!

*Note: For Phase 3 or 4 of the Clean Eating Healthy Detox Diet omit sweetener.

Health Benefits:

Chocolate has a very high amount of flavanoids, which act as antioxidents and so reduce free radicals in the body and help prevent cancer and other types of diseases. Some of the flavanoids in chocolate also produce nitric oxide in the body, which helps lower blood pressure. Chocolate also contains phenylethylamine (PEA), which produces endorphines in the brain that help balance mood and make you feel good.

Strawberries are a good source of vitamin C and many other antioxidents. They contain folate and anthocyanin, quercetin and kaempferol, which are just a few of the flavonoids in strawberries. The folate and flavanoids have excellent anti-oxidant and anti-carcinogenic properties. Strawberries are also a good source of potassium – a vital mineral that is hard to come by in significant quantities.
