Charissa Areington is a Hong Kong-based health and fitness nutritional coach who brings us a delicious recipe each week. The recipes are based on Nuzest, a premium supplement designed to provide the body with the balance of vitamins and minerals it needs. This month, we’re concentrating on breakfast. It may be the most important meal of the day, but it can also be simple and nutritious, helping boost our energy levels and brain alertness while avoiding those on-the-go coffee-and-croissant mornings! This Red Velvet Chocolate Smoothie recipe is one example.
A word from Charissa
No need to bake a cake, try this red velvet smoothie that the whole family can enjoy. Within this smoothie I added some raw unprocessed cacao. Raw cacao is known to be high in polyphenols, especially abundant in flavanols, that is not only high in antioxidants but has powerful anti-inflammatory effects.
Kids will love this red velvet smoothie, not only simple for you to make, but delicious; a smoothie that tastes like a dessert, but without the processed ingredients.
Incorporating some wholesome ingredients, along with Nuzest’s Rich Chocolate Clean Lean Protein / Kids Good Stuff Rich Chocolate, you’re not only getting a dessert, but a full meal. This smoothie can be enjoyed as an anytime meal, especially breakfast.
