Yum! This smoothie is just sweet enough and has an excellent crunchy texture thanks to the cacao nibs. Not only is this smoothie nice and light, but it’s also loaded with heart-healthy nutrients called flavonoids. Flavonoids are a group of antioxidant-containing nutrients found in both the cacao nibs and the strawberries; in particular, the strawberries contain anthocyanins that are anti-inflammatory. Mix this smoothie up by swapping in different types of berries and different types of leafy greens; remember that the more variety you have, the more nutrients you’ll consume.
