Anti-ageing energy drink of the day: Avocado milk blend with hot chocolate
I’ve been enjoying this rich tasting Cafédirect São Tomé 3-in-1 Luxury Hot Chocolate and mixing it with various fruit blends lately (above is one of the blends). What sets this hot chocolate apart from any other I’ve tried is its premium quality chocolate and whey protein content.
What’s great about Cafedirect São Tomé 3-in-1 Luxury Hot Chocolate is that it contains no additives, is light on calories (62kcal) and won an award from the UK Guild of Fine Food Great Taste.
Check out the benefits from the two main ingredients why protein and cocoa extracted from the press release.
Benefits of cocoa:
– Flavonoids and other phytochemicals help fight free radicals in the body, reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer while also lowering blood pressure
– Polyphenols help with cell regeneration, repairing damaged skin for softer skin with a natural glow
– Cocoa also contains hundreds of compounds that boost the production of serotonin and endorphins in your body to chase away the blues
It is no wonder Ancient Mayans referred to chocolate (the end product derived from cocoa) as the “food of the gods” not only for its wonderful taste but also for its healing and medicinal properties.
Benefits of whey protein:
– Provides a much-needed energy boost in the morning
– Appetite suppressant to stave off the hunger pangs
– Burns fat while preserving muscle
This makes it perfect for that pre-workout drink!

Avocado fruit is chosen to blend with the hot chocolate as it offers a rich constituency with milk. It is also an anti-ageing superfood which improves the survival of cells exposed to high concentrations of free radicals. In addition, avocado is known as an excellent source of potassium (more per weight than bananas), as well as vitamins K, B, C, and E. Other nutrients include bad cholesterol-lowering monounsaturated fat, in the form of oleic acid. This is good fat which reduces risks of stroke and heart disease. Among other things, it is also known to prevent cancer, and lower risks of diabetes and body weight.
As you can see I had topped the avocado milk blend with the cocoa powder to show that it does not need hot water to be made into a drink. This makes it an even handier drink to have regardless of where you are. So what is your comfort drink today?
