Superfood Chocolate Sunflower Smoothie
This super chocolate-y sunflower "milk" is a divine treat and it’s full of powerful superfoods that will keep your energy soaring.
Using raw cacao means you're adding valuable minerals and antioxidants while the soaked sunflower seeds deliver a nutrient-dense protein punch. You can control the sweetness with the dates—four is a great start, but add one or two more if you want more whole food sweetness.
