Mint Chocolate Smoothie Bowl
It’s summertime in California and this season I’m embracing the beauty of love, of encouragement, positivity and embracing ME! I’m deciding to put negative talk aside and ditch the “rules” of healthy eating. Eating plant-based definitely set a great foundation for the way I eat today, but I’m not longer ruled by what’s “right” and what’s “wrong”. Healthy choices can be made even with a gigantic bowl of chocolate smoothie goodness that tastes like soft-serve ice cream but full of superfood & veggie goodness. This mint chocolate smoothie is literal heaven and full of high vibe greens!
I used both frozen sweet potato and frozen cauliflower in this delicious smoothie. Using frozen veggies a smoothie not only makes your smoothie thick and creamy but provides the full nutritional content. I also used fresh mint and a healthy dose of cacao powder which helps with natural energy and provides a ton of antioxidants to the body. I also added a touch of spirulina which sounds weird but I promise you don’t even taste it! Spirulina is a great source of greens and helps detoxifies the body - perfect for the morning!
This smoothie bowl is great as a delicious and filling breakfast or a post-workout treat! Can’t wait to see what you think!! Tag me when you make your own (@copinaco)!
