Mocha Peanut Butter Cold Brew Slush

Mocha Peanut Butter Cold Brew Slush

Did you wake up feeling dull and listless? Low in energy and mood? We have just the thing to perk you up! Our Mocha Peanut Butter Cold Brew Slush energizes your body and mind with tasty chocolate and peanut butter. 

But wait! I don’t want to start my day with so much sugar and fat! 

Ah...never fear! The health benefits of this cold brew slush are outstanding. Sure, peanut butter is full of fat, but it’s heart-healthy fat that keeps you feeling full throughout the morning and can help control your intake of calories throughout the day. And cocoa powder is sweet in heart and brain health benefits and low in sugar, with just 0.2 grams of sugar in 2 tablespoons. We add to the mocha flavor with our essential amino acid supplement Chocolate Heal. High in protein, high on life! Start your day with a cold brew slush that will keep you happy well until it’s time to turn out the lights.  

Keeping You Healthy With…

Cold brew: The caffeine in cold brew improves your metabolic rate and mood. There’s evidence that cold brew isn’t as acidic as regular coffee, so does less of a number on your stomach. And the phenolic compounds in cold brew can help strengthen your heart health and stabilize blood sugar. 

Cocoa powder: Cocoa powder helps you shake off the sleepies with a jolt of caffeine and a morning mood boost. Prebiotic flavonols keep your gut healthy and happy and a plethora of polyphenols help protect your skin from premature aging. We can also tip our hats to cocoa for offering up heart and brain health benefits, including calming inflammation. 

Peanut butter: Packed with protein, peanut butter also contributes to your RDA of magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, niacin, and vitamin B6. Peanut butter makes this cold brew slush even more satiating, so you’re likely to eat fewer calories during the day. And while it’s high in fat, it’s the good kind of fat that keeps your heart pumping strong.

Amino Co. Heal: Chocolate flavored Heal sets you up for success by supporting healthy inflammation levels and triggering muscle growth and repair throughout the day. You’ll notice yourself getting stronger and going longer the more you take.

Banana: Keep mid-morning cravings at bay with the addition of banana, which always goes well with peanut butter! If you blend up a banana that still has a touch of green, you’re getting a nice amount of resistant starch, which is one of the gut’s favorite nutrients.

Cashew milk: The antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin protect your eyes from cellular damage and vitamin K is critical for blood clotting. Cashew milk has also been linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes because it helps keep blood sugar levels balanced.

Cacao nibs: More than just a chocolatey topping, cacao nibs deliver more of those antioxidant-rich and anti-inflammatory cocoa benefits. They make you feel good and give your cold brew slush that little extra something to make the day go great. Sprinkle them on liberally!
