Valentine’s Day is all about love. And regardless of whether or not you have a valentine, showing love to yourself and the people around you are equally as important and enjoyable! Take some time this Valentine’s day to treat yourself–or someone you love–to a delicious, chocolate strawberry smoothie with a healthy twist!
While this smoothie looks like a health-foodie nightmare, it’s actually packed with nutrition! With one full serving of moringa, a cup of strawberries, and a banana, this smoothie will give you enough vitamins, protein, and antioxidants to satisfy your appetite and your sweet tooth!
-2 tablespoons moringa powder
-2 cups of almond milk (or milk of choice)
-3 tablespoons raw cacao powder (and a little extra for garnish!)
-2 cups strawberries
-2 bananas (frozen)
-1 tsp cinnamon
Yield: two smoothies
Please note: depending on what type of milk you use this recipe may vary in sweetness! Taste as you go and feel free to add a medjool date, honey, or agave nectar if you’re craving something extra sweet.
-Remove bananas from the freezer and set them aside to thaw while you prep the other ingredients.
-Wash and cut strawberries into chunks, set aside. Don’t forget to compost the strawberry leaves!
-In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients. If the bananas are still rock-solid, pop them in the microwave for about 15 seconds then slice open the side with a paring knife.
-Blend all ingredients until smooth!
-Pour into a serving glass, garnish with some extra cacao powder, and enjoy!
