As I write this delicious recipe, I happen to be sipping my strawberry chocolate chip smoothie. And man oh man, is it good!
I can’t wait to share with you this simple and easy recipe. It tastes so good, it’s hard to believe it’s healthy.

Here are the benefits to this healthy recipe:
Strawberries: Full of vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants.
Cacao Nibs: Exceptionally rich in antioxidants (which reduces stress and inflammation).
Bananas: Rich in potassium – helps regulate the movement of nutrients and waste products in and out of cells.
Almond Butter: a great source of vitamin E, magnesium, copper, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), and phosphorous.
Collagen peptides: Helps hair and nails, gut health, brain health and weightless.
Other ways to limit the sugar and make this strawberry chocolate chip recipe low glycemic, is by removing the banana and replacing it with a 1/4-1/2 an avocado and 1 tsp of yacon.
Yacon is a syrup full of antioxidants and potassium. It’s effective against constipation and may lower blood sugar levels. It doesn’t spike your blood sugar like banana does. It’s a great alternative.
