Keeping You Healthy With…
Espresso powder: With just the right amount of caffeine to improve concentration and strengthen long-term memory, espresso powder contains antioxidants that bolster heart health and may even help slash your diabetes risk. Caffeine in espresso also helps speed up your metabolism, so 1 tablespoon supports your weight-loss or weight-maintenance goals.
Cauliflower: In addition to fiber and B vitamins that help you feel fuller for longer, cauliflower adds a creamier, thicker consistency to this frozen espresso drink. Cauliflower, like its cruciferous cousins broccoli and kale, is also rich in glucosinolates that have anti-cancer properties.
Chia seeds: With all the essential amino acids you need to build and repair lean tissue, chia seeds are one of the most nutrient-dense plant-based proteins. They’re also packed with essential fatty acids, like omega-3 that helps curb inflammation and protect your heart.
Almond milk: The nutty flavor and creamy texture of almond milk will have you trading in your Starbucks Frappucinos for this Mocha Chia Frozen Espresso, especially if you flavor it up with vanilla-sweetened almond milk. For more nutrients, opt for almond milk fortified with calcium and vitamin D, but be sure to look at the ingredients label to check for additives and sugars.
Amino Co Heal: This essential amino acid blend was designed to help protect against inflammation and accelerate recovery from surgery, injury, or illness. It also helps your muscles recover faster and build back stronger after a vigorous workout. It’s an everyday illness prevention and muscle enhancer that flavors up not just frozen coffee drinks, but smoothies and shakes of all flavors.
