Chocolate for breakfast? That’s talking my language! This smoothie bowl is a great choice for morning energy. And it’s so pretty! I added a little Greek yogurt for extra protein, but feel free to use protein nut milk if dairy is not your thing.
The good in this? Heart healthy fats from avocado, chia seeds and almonds have been shown to decrease risk of heart disease and help defend against some cancers. The strawberries and kiwi are high in Vitamin C which is a nutrient that acts as an antioxidant and protects the immune system.
