The Serotonin-Boosting Smoothie

Serotonin is our "feel-good" or "happy" neurotransmitter which has a major influence on mood and energy. Many factors can affect serotonin production in both positive and negative ways. A great way to positively BOOST your own production of serotonin and subsequently improve energy and mood is to eat cacao. Cacao, the less processed version of cocoa, has a deep and intense flavour that works wonderfully in both sweet and savoury recipes. It is full of b-vitamins, healthy fats and provides a good amount of fibre. Cacao is also recently gaining a reputation for its ability to boost serotonin and produce a "natural high". Just be mindful of WHEN you choose to consume this wonderful, chocolatey powder as it may leave you feeling too energised to fall asleep if you are sensitive to it!
