Cacao Smoothie Bowl

March 20, 2020

Some days I feel like a nut.

Let’s be real. As a mom, pretty much every day I feel a little nutty.

This Cashew Cacao Smoothie Bowl is inspired by those crazy moments.

Medjool dates are my favor way to naturally sweeten a smoothie, baked goods, and even diced in salads. They’re full of vitamins and nutrients like Vitamin B6, Potassium, Copper, Manganese and Magnesium.

Sugar can affect your:

  • Weight
  • Brain function
  • Mood
  • Digestive function
  • Heart
  • and even lead to diabetes

The scary fact is that the average adult consumes close to 16 teaspoons of refined sugar everyday. That’s more than double the recommended daily intake.

Medjool dates satisfy your sweet tooth naturally.

The protein I use in my smoothies and smoothie bowls contains a patented weight-loss ingredient that has been clinically studied to help manage cortisol—a stress hormone associated with fat storage in the abdomen, hips, and thighs.

It’s also gluten free, vegan, and contains Solathin which is a nutrient that can help you feel fuller for longer AKA = less snacking during the day.

The protein powder is the Chocolate Protein from doTERRA. If you don’t have your own account with doTERRA, I’d love to help you establish a wellness routine with essential oils and smoothies.

For today’s cacao smoothie bowl, I wanted to compliment the nutty palate created from the blended ingredients.

Cashews have tons of vitamins and minerals. They even have selenium which is an antioxidant that supports your body’s function. It is also associated with proper thyroid function.

It’s been discovered that Cacao Nibs have polyphenols that may support arteries in the heart and brain. Did you know that a 2-tablespoon serving of almond butter contains 111 milligrams of calcium?

Hemp Seeds are the perfect topping for this smoothie bowl because they are known to have a nutty flavor. Hemp seeds also have a 3:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3. This is the optimal range and provides healthy fats for glowing skin. PMS and Menopausal symptoms may also be reduced with hemp seeds.
