Superfood Goji Love Smoothie
This sounds like a dream dessert, but you can rest assured it’s in fact a heart healthy well-balanced treat. Heart health is all about consuming more plant-based foods, especially vibrant vegetables and fruits and healthy fats like nuts and omega-3s found in chia seeds. Antioxidant-rich dark chocolate and berries offer loads of nutrients that taste indulgent without adding excess sugar. There are many myths about diet and heart disease. One lesser known truth is that sugar is in fact a culprit in the risk of heart disease. Enjoy this smoothie with just a hint of natural sweetness from pure maple syrup, offering heart healthy electrolytes.
