A Chocolate Shake
Chocolate has a reputation as a mood lifter and we may crave it to lift our mood. Cacao powder has its own natural carbohydrates (26g per 100g) but this raw form of powder is unsweetened by man.
The health benefits come from the Flavonoids, especially the proanthocyanides, and they can make up to 10% of the dried weight of the powder. This is incredible and enormously helpful for cholesterol management, heart health and blood pressure management.
Tahini is sesame seed paste, an excellent source of mono-unsaturated fats and minerals with good B1 and B2. The lignin content helps cholesterol management and constipation.
