Yum! This smoothie is just sweet enough and has an excellent crunchy texture thanks to the cacao nibs.
Dairy-Free strawberry smoothie
Not only is this smoothie nice and light, but it’s also loaded with heart-healthy nutrients called flavonoids.
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.

1 tbsp almond butter
