Sweet-Tooth Alternatives: A Dessert NutraSmoothie

Enjoy this Dessert NutraSmoothie

Are you looking for a late-night snack or a way to add a few extra nutrients to your kids’ diet? A dessert smoothie is a great way to do that. Nut butters or avocado or bananas can add a creamy texture and sweetness. Dark chocolate or cocoa contain polyphenols—the antioxidants that help to support cholesterol and blood sugar levels and can boost heart and vascular health. Fresh or frozen fruits will make these NutraSmoothies taste even more like desserts.

After you’ve tried these NutraSmoothies, we encourage you to explore even more options. What’s in your pantry or freezer or fruit basket? You’ve seen the variety of ingredients that can go into making nutritional, eye-healthy smoothies, and we hope this inspires
you to try even more.

CHOCOLATE: Cocoa powder or squares of dark chocolate contain high
levels of phenolic antioxidants. So adding some cocoa or chocolate to your smoothie is a great flavor- and antioxidant-enhancer.
