In a recent post we gave advice for serving up Natural Calm when your kids have a penchant for sweets. One suggestion was to add Natural Calm to sweet smoothies. Here’s a recipe adapted from Organic Connections’ The Calmful Heart Health Book.
“This delicious smoothie is a great way to get in heart-healthy nutrients. It’s loaded with antioxidants; plus blueberries may help to reduce the risk of heart disease and improve cardiovascular health. The flavonoids in dark chocolate also support a healthy cardiovascular system. Look for less-processed varieties, like the raw cacao powder used in this recipe, in order to get the most benefits from your chocolate.”
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 0 minutes
1 cup almond milk
1 cup organic blueberries, frozen
½ medium banana, peeled, cut into chunks and frozen
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
¼ teaspoon unflavored Natural Calm magnesium

Add ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
