Now that Christmas is upon us, at Life Smoothies we can’t think of a better way to sweeten up your plans than our new chocolate and fruit shakes. And you, do you prefer dark or white chocolate? If you are a chocolate lover, keep reading because this post is dedicated to you.
We can make chocolate a healthy “guilty pleasure”, but how? By combining it with healthy foods like fruit. If we think of this perfect mix & match, we might think of a chocolate fondue with bananas and strawberries, or even these fruits with a chocolate coating, a classic for dates like on Valentine’s Day as a gift for your partner.
Fruits such as pineapple, mango, pear, red fruits like raspberries and bananas are also foods that could be combined with chocolate in any sweet dish to round off any evening with the best company, especially on special occasions.
At Life Smoothies we have added a twist to this versatile pair, and we bring you two perfect shakes, with fruit and chocolate as the stars.
A shake for dark chocolate lovers
If you answered dark chocolate… we bring you our Cherry & Chocolate Shake! Our innovative recipe masterfully combines the freshness and sweetness of small fruits with the purest and most bitter chocolate. Who hasn’t ended a Christmas dinner with a chocolate and cherry cake? Few things are more traditional than this combination.
Dark chocolate gives our body a great source of energy and antioxidant properties, it also gives us a great feeling of well-being and happiness, as well as helping to protect and care for the skin against the passing of time. Cherries, on the other hand, are ideal for weight loss and improving sleep cycles.
The perfect shake for those who prefer white chocolate
If, on the other hand, you have a super sweet tooth and prefer white chocolate… we have Strawberry & White Chocolate for you! Undoubtedly one of the least expected combinations, because it does not disappoint. Strawberries bring a certain acidity to a food so rich in calcium and known for its softness and sweetness.
White chocolate is excellent for those with bone problems or diseases because of its high milk content (milk solids and milk fat). It is also recommended for athletes due to their high daily energy expenditure and also for pregnant women to reinforce calcium intake during pregnancy.
Strawberries, on the other hand, are one of the most coveted fruits by everyone: on their own, in juices, smoothies, yoghurts or in pastries. There is no better way to finish off a meal than with them. But do you know what their benefits are and what they bring to our shake? They are a great source of hydration due to their almost 90% water content, are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidant properties. They are perfect for weight loss diets and aid skin care and delay the effects of ageing.
Now that you know more about our bitter chocolate and white chocolate shakes, you just need to decide who you would like to share this delicious food with.
This Christmas, give Life Smoothies as a gift!
