Valentine’s Day Smoothie

 

healthy valentines day treat, smoothie photo and recipe on sunny vegan

What better way to celebrate the big Valentine’s Day than with chocolate and strawberries? But  you don’t have to clog the arteries of your loved ones to say I love you. Here is a sweet treat that says I Love You with great taste and nutrition.

This smoothie is so thick and rich, you will totally forget there are any health benefits. It just so happens to be packed with vitamins C, E, A, B6, K and folate (strawberries) fibre, iron and magnesium (cocoa powder) and omega-3 fatty acids and lignans (flaxseed oil). and for another healthy V-day idea, check out my Valentines Day Granola.
Cheers to your health and Happy Valentine’s Day!
