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.

- 1/2 cup coconut milk

- 1 and 1/2 tbs raw cacao powder
- 1 tsp bee propolis (optional for added sweetness)
