Did you know that you can stimulate and boost your brain power by just drinking a smoothie?

And you’re kids will drink it because it’s CHOCOLATE 😉

Yes, you heard it right… you can give your brain a good workout by drinking a smoothie especially in the morning.

A fruit and chocolate smoothie is an easy way to get your kid’s on board while you nourish their body with essential nutrients to kick start a HEALTHY day!

And the best way to know the exact ingredients that are in your smoothie (not like some of those juicy jam high sugar places) is to make it yourself!

All you need is a blender, fruit , and healthy  base like water, almond or coconut milk.

Raspberries are known for being a “natural stimulant” that beat stress and rejuvenate your mind. They promote digestions, are powerful antioxidants, and are packed with anti-bacterial & anti-inflammatory properties.  Studies even prove that raspberries soothe and calm itchy and infected skin!

Now think about pairing raspberries with spinach, cacao and coconut milk.

Boom! An explosion of nutrients and flavor and the best part is that you can’t even taste the spinach!!

Both raspberry and coconut milk contain ketones. Ketones are responsible in producing energy to the brain and stimulate brain cell growth.

Cocoa (chocolate) is rich in agents that enhance the production of various feel-good chemicals in the brain, like serotonin and dopamine. This means that cocoa has anti-depressant, mood-elevating properties. This is no surprise to the any millions of people who self medicate with chocolate every day.

But Cacao is the healthy unprocessed chocolate.

The superfood “Cacao” enhances the production of the “good feeling” / dopamine in the brain. No wonder chocolate is known as “comfort food”.

Here’s the best part,  this is such a simple recipe… even your kid’s can make it!
