Delicious and Nutritious Chocolate Smoothie Bowl #Choctoberfest

I received product for review purposes, but all opinions are my own.



     Starting the day off with a healthy breakfast is so important.  Starting the day off with a delicious breakfast is even better.  Starting the day off with a delicious chocolate breakfast that you can feel good about is the BEST!  I mean what's not to love about something creamy, chocolate, delicious and healthy?


     Do you want to know what makes this even better?  Barlean's donates most of their profits to organizations that help the less fortunate.  So not only are you doing something good for your body, but you are doing something good for the world as well.  It's not often that eating a bowl of chocolate goodness can put forth so much positive change.



    As soon as I opened the box from Barlean's, I knew I just had to make a smoothie bowl from the Chocolate Silk Greens and Chocolate Mint Omega Swirl.  What a perfect way to get spinach, broccoli, carrots, plums, berries and omega fatty acids without even knowing it.  Never has something that tastes so decadent been so good for you.  I also received some organic butter flavored coconut oil that I have a million ideas for and can't wait to use!



   So start your day off with a few simple ingredients and a quick buzz in the blender.  Your body and your taste buds are sure to thank you!

  7. I love that by looking at the bowl, you'd have no idea you snuck all those greens in there. This would be perfect for tricking my hubby into eating more veggies! I think I'd actually be excited to get up and have that for breakfast! 😀
