This smoothie breakfast bowl is easy to make and loaded with superfoods and delicious CocoaVia® flavor!
There is something about eating a smoothie with a spoon. I honestly can’t remember the last time I used a straw to eat a smoothie. The thicker the better.
Let’s take a look at all of the delicious superfoods in this bowl.
- Almond Milk
- Chia Seeds
Yum times 6.
I am sure you are wondering what exactly Cocoavia® is and why you would want to use it!
What is Cocoavia®?
CocoaVia® is a daily cocoa extract supplement. The Cocoa Flavanols in CocoaVia® are scientifically proven to help support healthy circulation. Within a few hours of consuming a product with cocoa flavanols, the cocoa flavanols enter the body and start to support your cardiovascular/circulatory system.
Chocolate is good, but cocoa flavonals are good for you. The benefits from cocoa and chocolate come from the cocoa flavanols, not the percentage of cocoa or darkness of the chocolate.
What are the Health Benefits of CocoaVia®?
- Cardiovascular or heart health
- Cognitive health
- Skin health
- Blood flow, including to extremities (like fingers and toes)
- Exercise performance
Cocoavia® comes in two forms: vegetarian capsules and a single-serving powder-like form and has a similar taste and consistency to protein powder. I prefer the single-serve sticks because you can add it into things such as smoothies and baked goods. This comes in a few different flavors: Dark Chocolate Sweetened, Dark Chocolate Unsweetened, and Cran-Raspberry.
Of course my favorites are both of the chocolate variations :D
