Cocoa Nibs

Here’s how to add some rich, chocolaty flavor to your smoothie without the guilt. Naturally low in sugar, cocoa nibs are roasted and crushed pieces of cacao bean. A 1-ounce serving contains 36 percent of your recommended daily fiber intake, and like dark chocolate, they contain polyphenols known to fight heart disease and high blood pressure. Try the Navitas Naturals brand, which offers both unsweetened and lightly sweetened varieties.
