Not Your Mother’s Malt: The Chocolate Malt Shake is 345 Calories of Nutrient-Packed Goodness!
When we think of a chocolate malt, it generally conjures up thoughts of ice cream. But what we have is just as creamy, just as chocolatey, and yet even better! Not only is this drink delicious, it provides an amazing amount of vitamins by featuring not one, not two, but three dynamo ingredients that make it not just a tasty treat, but an incredible choice for your health.
The Chocolate Malt Star: Avocado
Let’s cut to the chase: Avocados are a superfood. We hear a lot about “superfoods”, but what does it really mean? Essentially, a superfood is super because of the vast nutritional benefits to your body. When a food is almost too good to be true nutritionally, the food community labels it a “superfood”. Avocados fall into this class. They have nearly every significant vitamin, a load of powerful antioxidants, and an abundance of “good” or healthy fats. In fact, the quality of the fat avocados offer increase our ability to absorb nutrients from other plant foods.
Many of us tend to be potassium-deficient. Enjoying a high potassium intake is linked to reduced blood pressure, and lowered risk for heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure. The prescription for more potassium is typically to eat more bananas. But turning convention on its head is the knowledge that avocados actually have more potassium than bananas.
Lastly, due to the high fiber content, avocados are low-carb. This fruit is also free of cholesterol and sodium, yet has a savory sweetness that suggests a bit of both.
The Chocolate Malt Star: Coconut Water
Coconut water is a American cultural phenomenon with an profusion of nutritive qualities. First, it’s insanely hydrating and kicks our hydration factor into overdrive. Proper hydration ensures false hunger doesn’t kick in and also keeps our systems–including metabolism–running smoothly. The richness of the drink is a natural appetite suppressant. Coconut water is also amazing for the skin and can be instrumental in maintaining skin health and eliminating oil. It’s wonderful for the digestive system, preventing indigestion and reducing acid reflux.
