Sweet, Dessert-Like Taste: 310 Chocolate Shake
The first ingredient to give this shake its rich, cocoa flavor is 310 Chocolate Shake! Naturally-sweetened with plant-based Stevia, this meal replacement shake powder gives the smoothie a classic decadent chocolate taste without all the unhealthy sugar. In fact, this “chocolate treat” provides nutrients you would get from a clean, well-balanced meal – including high-quality proteins, healthy carbs and fats, essential vitamins and minerals, green superfoods, and probiotics. This decadent shake is a great way to thoroughly nourish your body, and satisfy your sugar cravings all at the same time.
Created with a special blend of plant-based proteins including pea, brown rice, and hemp, you can be confident that you’re fueling your body with high-quality ingredients, that also assist with your weight loss and fitness goals. While the plant proteins in this shake powder provide superior fiber, (unlike whey and other dairy-based proteins), they’re also packed with immune-supporting vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Along with the plant proteins, the meal replacement powder also contains a vitamin and mineral blend to assist you in reaching your daily needs. This includes vitamins A, E, C, and more!
Furthermore, 310 Chocolate Shake contains 1 billion CFU of probiotics to further support immune and digestive health. These probiotics help provide you with the good bacteria your gut needs to function optimally.
Immune-Boosting Vitamin C: Navel Orange
The next ingredient in this sumptuous recipe is a navel orange! Rather than using orange juice from concentrate that often contains added sugars, a fresh orange contains an abundance of vital micronutrients, to support your health.
The orange and orange zest in this recipe also elevates the chocolate flavors in the shake, so every sip is like biting into a chocolate citrus cake! As you know, oranges are packed with vitamin C, which is studied for it's benefit on the immune system in addition to healthy glowing skin.
Sickness-Fighting Antioxidants: Cacao Nibs
Finally, cacao nibs are included in this recipe to add texture and intensify the chocolate flavors of 310 Chocolate Shake. Cacao nibs are much lower in sugar than regular chocolate, so they’re a great addition to any shake recipe if you’re looking for an extra punch of cocoa flavor. Not to mention, cacao nibs are an excellent source of antioxidants!
