Looking for a delicious way to sneak in more veggies in your day?
You’ll love this chocolatey smoothie that cleverly hides zucchini and will keep you full for hours!
Zucchini is chalked full of vitamin C – helpful for boosting our immune system and preventing disease. It also is loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and good for the nervous system.
The positive effects on mood may be due to cocoa’s flavanols, the conversion of tryptophan to the natural mood stabilizer serotonin, its caffeine content or simply the sensory pleasure of eating chocolate.
