DR FUHRMAN’S CHOCOLATE GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE
Dr. Furhman makes a seriously yummy green smoothie – there are few forces of nature that can compete with chocolate and this smoothie doubles to fulfill the craving. What better way than with the wonderful Dr. Furhman‘s chocolate green smoothie! Chocolate smoothie recipes are a great way to mix fruit and chocolate into a swirling combination of chocolatey-goodness. Make sure to use raw cocoa, not the processed/sweetened stuff.  Dr Fuhrman adds spinach to assure that you get a bigger powerhouse of nutrients, but any greens will work. We like to grind our flaxseeds fresh in small batches, but you can buy them ground as well. Make sure to join our community for more healthy and delicious celebrity recipes! :)

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Dark Chocolate
increases blood flow to the brain as well as to the heart, so it can help improve cognitive function. It also helps reduce risk of stroke. Dark chocolate contains several chemical compounds that have a positive effect on your mood and cognitive health. One is phenylethylamine (PEA), the same chemical your brain creates when you feel like you’re falling in love. PEA encourages your brain to release endorphins, so eating dark chocolate will make you feel happier.

Spinach is a powerhouse of nutrition rich in many vitamins and nutrients.  Experts have identified at least thirteen different compounds in spinach that provide antioxidant and/or anti-cancer benefits.  Spinach rich in calcium and magnesium, helps prevent osteoporosis.  It is also an excellent source of iron, which is critical for women in menopause and for people who have anemia or chronic fatigue syndrome.  Spinach contains vitamin E, which helps slow mental decline and memory loss.
