Whip up this chocolaty superfood smoothie to naturally elevate your mood and boost your spirits! Not only is cacao (the superfood behind all things chocolate) SO yummy, it’s also high in tryptophan, which increases serotonin levels in the brain.

The nourishing drink also features tryptophan-rich pumpkin seeds and coconut, which is loaded with medium-chain triglycerides—fats that keep your brain oxygenated, healthy, and happy!
