If you’re looking for a healthy and yummy way to satisfy that sweet tooth, this may just be the smoothie for you. A perfect mixture of bananas and chocolate sweetness, all while nutrient packed with ingredients like chia seeds which all help keep us happy & healthy.
Did you know that Chia seeds contain 5 times more calcium than milk, 7 times more Vitamin C than oranges, 3 times more iron than spinach, 2 times the potassium than bananas, and 8 times more Omega 3 than salmon?
Yep, you read all that right.
