DR. OZ EURO NUT SMOOTHIE SHAKE RECIPE
This Dr. Oz Smoothie Recipe is perfect as a fulfilling breakfast shake or a post workout snack.  We LOVE ways to use our healthy and nutritious raw cacao!  We have tried making this protein rich nutty smoothie with both hazelnut butter and Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter which is a MUCH HEALTHIER version than super-high-sugar Nutella (it’s the FIRST ingredient!!), and both were equally tasty! However we did like the chocolate hazelnut a little more, and definitely have found more uses for it! This is not a very sweet smoothie, so add more Stevia (we love NuNaturals for it’s lighter, alcohol free flavors!) or for added fiber, use soaked & pitted dates to your taste. The optional flax seeds give this smoothie an extra nutty flavor, we omit them most of the time to taste more of the chocolate… but if you need an added boost of fiber you can grind flax seeds in your high power blender and add a tablespoon or more. We LOVE Dr. Oz Recipes! Be sure to join our community for more healthy blender recipes.

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Raw cacao is a rich source of antioxidant flavonoids that promote cardiovascular health and protect against toxins. The antioxidant flavonoids in raw cacao can help improve circulation, regular heartbeat and blood pressure. Additionally, they help the body repair itself and resist free-radical toxins. Raw cacao is most known for being a superfood that is a rich source of antioxidants, but it is also filled with a number of other beneficial nutrients. As a rich source of manganese, raw cacao helps oxygenate the blood. Raw cacao is also a rich source of magnesium, which helps in balancing brain chemistry. It is also rich in sulfur, which builds strong nails and hair, and promotes beautiful skin. (Source: Livestrong)
