So I totally love chocolate. In previous posts I’ve talked about how that’s one habit I can’t kick. Chocolate is a must have.
This morning I had an awesome nutrient packed CHOCOLATE GALORE smoothie bowl.
- 4 frozen, peeled bananas (very ripe)
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- Frozen pineapple
- Seattle granola (dark chocolate, cranberry, and almonds)
- Coconut chips
- Chia seeds
If you want to add more flavor, you can get a mocha flavor by adding a half a cup of brewed coffee.
Split the recipe in half and freeze the other half in a container.
In a couple of hours you got nice cream! No dairy, no sugar, and yummy!
*cacao powder can be found at various health stores. I got mine from the health section of TJ Maxx (lol)
*Raw Cacao and chocolate bars you find in stores are completely different. Processed chocolate is made with roasted cocoa, sugar, milk, and other ingredients that turn it into a solid food. (Read more: http://dailysuperfoodlove.com/2852/21-fantastic-benefits-of-cacao/#ixzz4imDyYW4G)
