Cheeky Chocolate Smoothie

Two chocolate posts in one day? How very unlike me! Because I don’t have chocolate very often, I find its effects very powerful- like when you have any stimulant that you don’t partake in daily. It gives me an incredible lift, it makes me smile, and it keeps me awake. However, like all stimulants, I still feel a slight crash from cacao, and it keeps me restless for hours! So, I don’t have it very often. It is however, without a doubt, a wonderful superfood- high in magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and wonderful for mental clarity, stamina and opening the heart. This smoothie is simple yet incredibly rich and decadent! It is suitable for kids (in the morning!) and will leave you feeling satisfied for hours. It is loaded with goodness, and it tastes like heaven…
