This delicious smoothie or dare I even say it… dessert… is a must try! Perfect for post workout nourishment or maybe its your after dinner delight (good-bye breyers) or maybe its the kiddos choice… either way this is fantastic and while it taste too good to be true… it actually packs a punch in the nutrition category.

Further, it is possibly one of the best sources of dietary potassium and full of magnesium (great for energy metabolism and muscle and nerve function! The list goes on… needless to say, its worth adding a cup to the smoothie!
Peanut butter… not just for kids! 7.7 grams of protein, which helps keep your tissues strong and promotes immune function!
Banana…not just for monkeys! High in tryptophan (great for fighting the blues)… high in potassium and 3 grams of fiber!
Ground flax seed… Full of omega-3 essential fatty acids… great heart-healthy effects! Fiber, both soluble and insoluble… power seed!
Cacoa beans are a great source of antioxidants and natural energy!
Dates… not just for sweetness! Really! Dates are full of tannins… they are know to have an anti-infective, anti-inflammatory and anti-hemorrhagic properties! Also they have a moderate amount of vitamin-A and rich in fiber, which prevents LDL cholesterol absorption in the gut!
