Superfood powders are a great way to add a quick punch of flavor and nutrition to your diet. From smoothies to cereals, they’re easy to use and each bring a unique set of benefits. Here are 5 of our favorites:
1. Raw Cacao
Chocolate lovers rejoice! With more antioxidant flavonoids than any other food tested thus far, raw cacao powder makes a tasty and nutritious addition to smoothies, raw and baked desserts, homemade energy bars, and cereals.
Raw cacao powder is made from the cacao bean, which, in its natural state, contains plenty of essential minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium, and is a good source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Raw cacao powder (as distinct from regular cocoa powder sold in the baking aisle) is the best source of these beneficial antioxidants and nutrients. Look for it at natural food stores or online from Navitas Naturals or Wilderness Family Naturals.
