There is no denying that chocolate holds a very special place in our hearts. There is just something so tempting and satisfying about chocolate that it is really hard to stay away. There is no mistaking this Chocolate smoothie for being low calorie but it is really satisfying and won’t hurt if it is enjoyed only every now and then.
But you can turn this Chocolate smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
