Who doesn’t love a chocolate peanut butter combination?! We are excited to be adding peanut butter to our Balance smoothie for both its incredible taste and health benefits. Peanut butter is packed with many good, health-promoting nutrients, including vitamin E, magnesium, iron, selenium and vitamin B6. Research shows that people who regularly eat nuts and nut butter, including peanut butter, are less likely to develop heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Peanut butter also increases the protein content of the Balance smoothie, and consuming it will help you feel and remain full for longer.
Not to be confused with chocolate liqueur, which is alcoholic, chocolate liquor is the solid form of cocoa. This helps give the smoothie its chocolate flavor and omits the unhealthy fats and sugars of most chocolates. As a result, you can utilize all the benefits of chocolate that are usually masked by additives. Consuming chocolate can even increase your serotonin levels. Additionally, the healthy chocolates in this smoothie can help regulate blood sugar!
Cacao beans are native to American continents and have been enjoyed for centuries. Now it is one of the beloved treats in the world. So what’s the difference between cocoa and cacao? Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing un-roasted cacao beans. This process retains the living enzymes, meaning you still get all the nutrients, while it removes the fat. Cacao beans contain antioxidants that promote general health and protect against disease. Among all this, cacao is also a great energy booster. This is because it contains components that have a similar structure to caffeine.
The Balance has the perfect creamy texture that makes the perfect smoothie. If you love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter then this smoothie will not disappoint!
