You can add unsweetened cacao into your smoothie. It will not only make your drink taste good but you will also benefit from the appetite suppression properties of cacao. Cacao has chemicals that increase the levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain, which creates a feeling of fullness for a longer period of time.
