This incredible juice recipe is from my beautiful friend, Julie Morris's new book: Superfood Juices. It was just released, be sure to pick up a copy for cutting edge, outside the box recipes! (add Philosophie Superfood powders to any of them for an extra boost!)
A juice with chocolate—oh heavens yes! The sweetness of ground cacao in this recipe plays with the freshness of pears like a symphony in your mouth.
MAKES APPROXIMATELY 16 OUNCES
4 extra-ripe pears (such as Bosc), cored
2 t almond butter
1 t vanilla extract
2 T cacao magic powder
1⁄8 t cinnamon powder
Juice the pears. Transfer the fresh juice to a blender, add the remaining ingredients, and blend until smooth.
When it comes to magnesium, cacao is at the top of the charts, offering more than any other food. Magnesium plays an extremely important role in the body, including aiding in the absorption of calcium, promoting detoxification, and helping ease symptoms of PMS and menopause.
