An organic, plant-based, low-sugar recipe packed with iron, protein and omega-3s perfect for chocolate lovers, children and pregnant women who need an iron boost!
I love protein shake smoothies as much as the next person but am usually put off from purchasing because of the cost, sugar content and packaging. When I struggled with less than optimal iron levels this pregnancy, my good friend Dr. Wirtz from Footprint Health and Wellness suggested this recipe to me and the taste is amazing!!
