I have been in a serious DARK CHOCOLATE mood lately. Rich, creamy, delicious chocolate. I am always looking for ways to turn a dessert into a smoothie while keeping it healthy and full of benefits. The more chocolate the better!
As far as smoothies go I opt for a raw or minimally processed cacao rather than cocoa. Both come from the cacao bean but cacao is processed less and has more health benefits. Cocoa is heavily processed and has added chemicals and sweeteners to it for flavor purposes.
