Who doesn’t love a touch of chocolate! With Easter around the corner, we thought this was the perfect time to share this delicious and nutritious recipe by the beautiful Krissy, qualified nutritionist and health coach, and the creative mastermind behind Her Nourished.

This nourishing Cacao shake is simple, delicious and filled with whole food ingredients, making it the perfect indulgent treat.

Cacao is known by many as quite the extraordinary superfood.  Firstly, chocolate (doesn’t that say it all!).  That in itself is a superfood quality.  But more importantly, cacao is known to contain a variety of important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants all of which are important for skin health as well as overall health and wellbeing.

Beauty starts within, and an ingredient such as cacao may support healthy glowing skin because of the naturally occurring flavonoids (antioxidants).  Antioxidants can help with the build up of free radicals that occur as a result of exposure to environmental pollutants, sun exposure and smoking.

What better way to enhance your natural beauty than to sip on a delicious and nutrient-dense cacao shake while wearing your favourite Cacao Shake Vegan Lipstick.

Ingredients:

-    1/2 cup filtered water

-    1/2 cup coconut milk (or your favourite dairy-free milk)

-    1 tbsp cacao powder

-    1/2 medium banana, peeled (choose a ripe, spotty banana)

-    1/4 cup ice cubes (approximately 6 regular sized ice cubes)

-    1 medjool date, pitted (optional - provides added sweetness, a slight caramel flavour and additional fibre)

Method:

-    Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

-    Serve chilled.

You can find Cacao at your local health food store, supermarket or online.  Ideally look for ethically sourced Cacao.  Organic and Fair Trade Cacao is almost always ethically sourced.

We hope you enjoy experimenting with this delicious recipe by Krissy, make sure to take a photo and tag @DustyGirlsMakeup in your Cacao shake creation or with your Dusty Girls Cacao Shake Vegan Lipstick.
