Her milkshake brings all the boys to the yard...


... And by that I mean Meredith's yummy raw chocolate milkshake, of course! For the very little amount of work it takes to put this together, it certainly was a nice treat. For my own personal tastes, I think I would use about half the sweetener, but other than that it was super tasty! I'm excited to try the vanilla one now, since it's usually the taste I prefer if asked to answer the age old vanilla or chocolate question.

Again, the great thing about the raw diet is how you can enjoy pure, living and raw foods that you know are good for your body, spirit, and for the environment without having to give them a second them.

While everyone in the mainstream world is freaking out about what is actually in one of those 'chocolate-y' candy bars and chocolate percentages and what not, we can enjoy the optimal health benefits of cacao without question. Did you know that cacao is one of the foods with the highest magnesium levels? It helps our body bind calcium to built strong bones, teeth, and is a great stress relieving mineral!

Raw cacao also has serious amounts of antioxidants, it definitely red wine and green tea a run for their money! Some studies even claim it beats all the superfoods like goji berries and acai! Who knew? More milkshakes anyone?
