Chocolate Almond Smoothie Bowls

Chocolate for breakfast….sure, why not?!

This protein packed smoothie bowl is a fantastic way to start the day! Loaded with coconut, almonds (protein) with just the right about of cocoa and sweetener, and your day is off to a great start! This also makes a fantastic “need something to hold me until dinner” afternoon snack, or even dessert. You can add/subtract the sweetener, if you’re watching sugar or carbs, and you can add whatever related toppings that you’d like. (See note below on how to save/skimp on toppings!)

Quick note…you definitely want to use frozen bananas for this one, since it’s the only frozen fruit used in this smoothie…See Tips below for the reason! 🙂

Enjoy!
