A primary objective of Navitas Naturals is to make it easy for people to enjoy the many benefits of superfoods, and that's why we launched the Smoothment. What is the Smoothment? It's an interactive, multimedia program we launched this year that features easy and delicious smoothie recipes and advice from superfoods gurus. The goal of the Smoothment is to inspire people to upgrade the nutrition of one meal or snack per day by substituting an organic superfood smoothie into their routine. Our first Smoothment campaign was web-based and encouraged people to sign up - more than 1,000 people have already joined! In case you have not signed up for the Smoothment yet, the recipe video should entice you to. Since it's time to celebrate prime cacao season, we're sharing one of the most popular 60-Second Smoothie recipes that was featured in our first Smoothment program that kicked off the New Year - Good Morning Mocha.
Some days you need a little something extra to get the spring back in your step. The Good Morning Mocha smoothie is a great way to get energized. Cacao, the key ingredient in this smoothie, is both a stimulant and a nourishing food. Although cacao contains a small amount of caffeine, as well as other stimulants including theobromine, it primarily provides energy through its potent antioxidants and other nutrients that promote blood circulation and oxygenation in the body. Cacao also provides notable quantities of several "good mood" phytochemicals that increase the activity of beneficial neurotransmitters and endorphins, enabling us to feel better mentally. Join the Smoothment and get energized!
