This is a super healthy, super fun discovery. Not only are these fun to eat, but it gave me a reason to bust out my little food processor. 🙂
One of the best things about this treat, are the nutritional benefits:
*Hemp– is an excellent plant source of Omega’s 3, 6 & 9 ~ a complete protein w/ amino acids, iron, magnesium, zinc & potassium
*Cacao– is rich in antioxidants, high in dietary fiber, magnesium, iron and other essential minerals.
*Goji– “arguably the most potent superfoods known”; supporting the immune system, rich in Vit A, antioxidants, 20 trace minerals. (FYI- ounce per ounce it contain more Vit C than oranges, more beta-carotene than carrots and more iron than spinach) !!
*Coconut oil– healthy, plant based & cholesterol free. Delicious & can be used topically for rejuvenating skin & hair.
*Maca– is praised for increasing stamina, booting libido, and combating fatigue. It also enables the body to regulate stress factors imposed on it.
