Decadent Chocolate Smoothie For Your Valentine

Chocolate smoothieIt’s that time of the year again when all the shops are full of red and pink candy and boxes of chocolate. Valentine’s Day can be a real problem if you’re trying to stay healthy and stick to your New Year’s Resolutions. I’m here to tell you that you can have chocolate and stay healthy too! This is a decadent chocolate smoothie for your valentine which would be a perfect accompaniment to my strawberry heart gluten free breakfast pancakes. It contains raw cacao, chocolate protein and maca known for increasing libido and fertility. Raw cacao is full of antioxidants and great for heart health and it adds a really delicious deep chocolately flavor to this smoothie too. Make this smoothie and everyone will fall in love with you!
