White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Smoothie


The rich and decadent flavor of macadamia nuts coupled with the velvety smoothness of the cacao butter makes this smoothie a hit with all my girlfriends and I hope you enjoy it too! When selecting cacao butter, choose high quality in order to protect yourself from toxins formed during the natural fermentation process chocolate goes through prior to being shipped to market. You can source it at your local real foods natural market or from online retailers like Amazon. While adjusting your palette to enjoy a lower threshold of sweetness is one of the best things you can do for your overall health, it’s a virtuous process that takes humility and some time getting used to. Adding a few drops of real and pure stevia is a safe alternative to globs of sugar in the morning and also a helpful swap if you have been used to fruit – heavy smoothies to start your day. Enjoy!
