As a result of this powerful combination of ingredients, the Pegan smoothie can help in managing and losing weight: its high-fiber content can aid in keeping you full and satisfied with relatively low calories, while the low glycemic intake help to prevent huge spikes in your blood sugar levels.

Ingredient Selection Tips

Cacao powder

Did you know that there is a difference between Cacao powder and Cocoa powder? They are very similar except for the way they are processed. While cacao is processed at low temperature and then milled into a powder, cocoa is made from roasted cacao beans processed at high temperature and then milled into a powder. If you can, prefer high-quality cacao powder, as it contains and preserves more beneficial nutrients.

Noteworthy Health Benefits

Berries

These round fruit of various colors are small, mainly blue, red, and purple, sweet or sour in taste, and delicate and gentle fruit. Berries are small vitamin bombs. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and cranberries, are loaded with vitamin C, K, manganese, iron, and antioxidants. They are also low in calories and can help keep your immune system strong as well as protect you from various infections. 

Cacao powder

Cacao powder is an excellent source of iron, magnesium, potassium, fiber, and flavonoids. It promotes healthy digestion, lowers blood pressure, and reduces diabetes risk. The potassium contained in cacao powder is responsible for decreasing the risk of heart diseases and for reducing cellular oxidation processes.
