Coco-Berry Green Warrior Smoothie
Article Published on Jul 18, 2016
Think berry thoughts. Think cool refreshing thoughts. Think how good a coco-berry green warrior smoothie will taste!
Calling all chocoholics!
Summertime is in full swing, and it’s hot outside! Nothing goes down better than an ice cold chocolate shake when the sun is beaming and the air is thick. You may have noticed the abundance of fresh berries at your local supermarket, and that’s because they’re in season—meaning they’re at the peak of their flavor and nutritional density! Berries also happen to be on the “Dirty Dozen” list—which lists the most chemical and pesticide-ridden produce out there, so be sure to stock up on organic whenever possible!
A Well-Rounded Meal in a Glass
This Coco-Berry Green Warrior Smoothie will give you everything you need to stay cool and well-nourished this summer, and it’s sure to satisfy your chocolate cravings in a healthy way! The strawberries and blueberries pack a healthy dose of antioxidants and vitamin C to keep your immune system in check. The ripe, frozen banana is loaded with potassium and adds an extra kick of sweetness, while cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar levels. Of course we all want to cut down on our inflammation, and that’s where ginger comes in as the power-player. And don’t forget—try to work greens into every meal of the day! Spinach is loaded with calcium and protein and is highly alkaline, which helps to balance your body’s pH and keep acidity at bay. Last but not least, Sunwarrior Chocolate Warrior Blend will give you the extra protein boost you need with a smooth and indulgent, chocolatey flavor that’s unbeatable!
