Banana and cocoa powder smoothie

Imagine taking a snack break on a sunny day and slurping down a healthy cup of organic smoothie.


Now imagine adding some cocoa powder to your smoothie to enhance the taste and nutritive value...absolute bliss!


Research suggests consuming cocoa powder can increase your body's anti-inflammatory response, and reduce the risk of stroke and cardiac-related diseases.


Before you jump to a conclusion that cocoa powder cannot be added to smoothies, maybe you would change your mind after trying out these five smoothie ideas.


All you need is to grab your choice of smoothie ingredients and your stock of organic cocoa powder from Organic Trade and Investments.

The blend of these makes our mouths water already.


Recipe 2
