Chocolate Coffee Protein Breakfast Bowl

Smoothies are the best! You really can’t screw them up, and by a simple fruit or veggie swap or addition, you can pretty much take the flavor in a whole new direction. Serve it up in a large glass or pour it in a bowl, garnished with amazing “condiments” such as granola, cacao nibs, coconut flakes, and a drizzle of maple syrup, and you have one incredible breakfast!

And that was the start of my creation to blend a typical chocolate protein smoothie with COFFEE!  I can’t think of a better way to kick off your day than with chocolate and coffee together in one bowl….Am I right?!?! ☕️🍫
.
Here’s my newest creation with 10 grams of protein, no refined sugar, no gluten and dairy free! Oh my! It’s good! Chocolate and coffee are both rich in antioxidants, so this is a home run for breakfast, lunch, snack, or even dessert (scale the portions accordingly).

My recipe is just a skeleton or template. Put on your creative genius and blend up your own Chocolate Coffee Protein breakfast smoothie!
