Keeping You Healthy With…
Dates: Rich in bone-loving minerals like selenium, copper, manganese, and magnesium, dates can help protect against osteoporosis. They’re also abundant in iron and do wonders for your digestive system.
Amino Co Heal: The mocha flavor in this velvety smoothie is courtesy of Chocolate Heal, a patented blend of essential amino acids that promotes a healthy inflammation response and speedy healing, be it from injury, surgery, or workouts!
Sweet potato: A steamed sweet potato might not be the first ingredient you reach for in a coffee smoothie, but trust us...it takes smoothness to a whole new level. Sweet potatoes are a top notch source of vitamin A and have noteworthy anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, and anti-cancer properties.
Banana: Add to the energy with a heart-healthy banana, full of potassium, manganese, and vitamin C. Eat it more on the green side and you’ve got yourself a fantastic source of resistant starch for better digestive health.
Cold brew: It wouldn’t be a mocha smoothie without caffeine. We chose cold brew for our energy shot because it’s less acidic and easier on the stomach. The energy is clean and long-lasting. We bet it takes you all the way through the afternoon and into the evening!
Almond milk: The rich flavor and texture of vanilla-sweetened almond milk puts the “dessert” in this velvety mocha smoothie. It’s naturally dairy free, and commercial varieties can be fortified with 24% of your calcium and 18% of your vitamin D needs.
