"This hormone-balancing chocolate zucchini smoothie is tasty, satisfying and mega healthy. The chocolate flavour of this smoothie can hide a ton of veggies like zucchini, avocado, spinach, etc. etc. This smoothie is the perfect balance of healthy fats, fibre-rich veggies and superfoods to help balance hormones. The frozen banana and ripe avocado give this smoothie a creamy base, while the addition of zucchini adds a nutty flavour and a great source of fibre. Raw cacao powder is packed with iron and magnesium, great for supporting the immune system and keeping sugar cravings at bay. The healthy fats in this smoothie from coconut milk, avocado, and ground flax are wonderful hormone balancers, promoting brain health and glowing skin. Try adding your favourite adaptogenic herb to this smoothie, like maca powder or ashwagandha root powder to help naturally balance stress hormones, promote sustained energy and increase stamina."
