    Berry Chocolate Smoothie

    Nothing feels better than to lighten and brighten up in the spring and summer! One way to do this is by drinking lots of nutrient-packed smoothies, loaded with bright greens, fresh or frozen berries and a variety of superfoods! And since dark chocolate comes from the cocoa plant, I wouldn't dare leave out those amazing nutrients! :) 

    Smoothies are a great way to get in your daily requirement of fruits and veggies. They can help give you beautiful hair, skin and nails with all of the vitamins and minerals you're ingesting. They can also be a great tool for weight loss. By replacing a meal with a healthy (low-sugar) smoothie, you are guaranteeing that you're filling your body with the good stuff it needs, and it's most likely that your smoothie is healthier than the meal you replaced it with! 

    Smoothies are also a great way to detox! They give your digestive system a chance to take a break, and also by adding detoxifying ingredients to your smoothies like to kale, you are helping your body's detoxification process. 

    I love to add as many superfoods as I can to my smoothies like chia, hemp and pumpkin seeds, coconut oil and avocado. You can also add supplements like Vitamin C powder, fish or cod liver oil and protein powder. Smoothies are a great way to disguise super healthy ingredients without really tasting them, especially for kids! They're a great way to get immune boosting ingredients into our bodies. We find that adding frozen pineapple to smoothies is a great way to get kids to like them.
