Raw cacao is cold pressed, unroasted, unprocessed. The good for you substances don't get roasted off so cacao is packed with antioxidants, fibre, magnesium, protein and calcium. Cacao can improve heart health, lower blood pressure, reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol and boost serotonin levels in the brain. Avocado is a great source of heart healthy fats, and along with bananas provide loads of potassium and antioxidants.

1 teaspoon cinnamon
Tiny pinch of salt (Himalayan or Celtic)
