I don’t know about you, but transitioning back to a healthy diet after the decadence of the holidays is really hard for me. Getting the sugar cravings under control is miserable, but necessary. So recipes like this one that doesn’t have any refined sugar and yet taste sweet and rich are such a blessing!

What Are Superfoods?

‘Superfoods’ is actually a marketing term for any food that packs a big nutrient punch for very few calories. They’re typically plant-based but also include some fish. Superfoods contain high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The list of ‘superfoods’ include: 

  • Berries – raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, goji berries, and acai berries
  • Soy
  • Tea – especially green tea
  • Dark leafy greens – think spinach, kale, and collards.
  • Salmon – buy only wild-caught seafood that is sustainably sourced. You can find more information on sustainable seafood here.
  • Dark chocolate
  • Red wine

Ingredients Needed

  • Bananas – both frozen and fresh
  • Almond milk – I used Almond Breeze unsweetened chocolate almond milk, but use your favorite nut milk.
  • Peanut butter powder – I used PBFit, but there are lots of different brands. The powder cuts down on the fat and calories, but you could also use an equal amount of peanut butter.
  • Cacao powder – I used Now Foods Raw Cacao powder. 
  • Protein powder – I used a flavorless collagen powder, but use what you have or enjoy.
  • Peanuts
  • Low-fat granola
  • 70% cacao dark chocolate chips

What Is The Difference Between Cacao And Cocoa Powder?

Although they may look, smell, and taste similar, they ARE different. The biggest difference is how each is processed.

Cocoa powder is made from roasted beans, thus losing most of its nutritional benefits from the heat. Cacao powder is made from raw and fermented beans and retains its vitamins and minerals.

What Are The Benefits Of Cacao?

Cacao is a very powerful ‘superfood’, rich in flavinoids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. It aids in reducing your appetite, lowers blood pressure, improves blood flow to the brain and heart, and even improves your mood.
