Not only is this recipe super tasty but its is packed with nutrient-dense foods. Avocados contain 15 grams of healthy fats, which is necessary for optimal brain function and to keep inflammation at bay. They are loaded with fiber (not carbs), have more potassium than bananas and have a high vitamin content. Raw cacao is considered a superfood. It is packed with phytonutrients, is super high in magnesium for a healthy heart and brain, it has 40 times the antioxidants as blueberries, its the highest plant-based source of iron and is a natural mood elevator. Coconut milk is highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
