Antioxidant-Packed Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Smoothie

Mmm chocolate covered strawberries… such a treat!

But why wait for romantic evenings or parties to enjoy them? Life’s too short! So indulge in this delicious Antioxidant-Packed Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie to do your tastebuds and body good.

Cacao and strawberries are both antioxidant powerhouses. Not only are strawberries rich in the potent antioxidant vitamin C — just five large berries provide almost 59 milligrams of vitamin C, or 98% of the recommended daily value — but they’re also low in sugar. This means that they won’t cause the inflammatory spike in blood sugar that sweeter fruits can.
