I've kept 180 lbs. off for 4 years by knowing when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em. If I'm truly craving a dessert, I have it and move on. But for the vague and ordinary craving for sugar, this works beautifully! It's loaded with protein, calcium, antioxidants, and other nutrients, and I adore it as an afternoon snack or a post-workout boost. Check out your area health food store or the internet for superfoods. My favorite brand is Navitas Naturals.
Chocolate Mint Protein Smoothie
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk

1 Tbs. Maca (a superfood powder)
1 Tbs. raw cacao powder
Handful of baby spinich
Optional: 3-4 ice cubes
