Start your day with a chocolaty raw cacao smoothie bowl: The perfect heart-healthy breakfast!

by , 28 July 2015

I've recently become obsessed with raw cacao. And there's good reason behind it! Unlike processed dark chocolate, raw cacao preserves antioxidants.

Cacao is also a very rich food source of magnesium, which also happens to be the most deficient mineral in the diet of modern cultures.

Let me tell you more about why you should indulge in a raw cacao smoothie bowl now and then. I'm even going to throw in a recipe you'll just love!

The health benefits of a raw cacao smoothie bowl for breakfast

Like I’ve already mentioned, raw cacao is high in magnesium. Magnesium helps relax your muscles, improves peristalsis in your guy, and promotes a healthy heart and cardiovascular system.
 
The other antioxidants in raw cacao can help dissolve plaque build-up in your arteries and in turn stave off heart disease. They can also help maintain healthy blood pressure levels.
 
I’d say that this smoothie bowl is the perfect heart-healthy breakfast!
