OK folks, it’s no secret that we all have cravings. Why not nip those cravings (before things get ugly and you find yourself mowing down candy bars and Lay’s chips by the handful) with a snack that’s not only GOOD for you, but gives you energy? If you have a food processor on hand and are willing to try something new, might I suggest magic mousse? It’s easy enough to make and you can find the ingredients at your local health food store.

I came across this gem on Mind Body Green (holler!) and wanted to share it with you.

 

mix together (in a Vitamix, food processor or even by hand): one avocado, 1 tablespoon of cacao powder, 1 teaspoon of Mesquite powder, a pinch of Cayenne pepper, ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 Medjool date (soaked until soft and pitted), ¼ teaspoon of vanilla powder and (optional, but delicious and energizing), and 1 teaspoon of maca powder until smooth and creamy. Top with cacao nibs for extra crunch and a huge surge of energy that will make that coffee pot brewing nearby very jealous.

This treat is rich in magnesium, antioxidants and vitamins. It’s a great source of theobromine, which stimulates the nervous system just like caffeine for a healthy energy boost. Cacao also helps to release endorphins and stabilize blood sugar so it’s a delicious good mood food. Avocadoes are packed with protein and vitamins, making them a great energy source and the Cayenne pepper also boosts metabolism and increases energy levels. Dates add a burst of natural sugars plus magnesium and potassium. Add maca powder for even more oomph.
How about that? it’s yummy, has less calories and it’s GOOD FOR YOU!
You’re welcome 😉
Enjoy!!
