Chocolate Protein Smoothie Bowl

Chocolate Protein Smoothie Bowl

I’ve never had a huge sweet tooth. Given the choice between a bag of chips and a donut, 9 times out of 10 I’ll snatch the bag of chips (kettle-cooked Salt & Vinegar, please) out of your hand. I’ve realized not much fruit has ever been a part of my diet, so now I’m trying to incorporate a fair amount, while still watching how much sugar I consume. That being said, I do love chocolate. A world without chocolate is just not a place I care to live in.

A few weeks ago I was scrolling through Pinterest, and saw these beautiful smoothie bowls topped with not only fruit, but all kinds of seeds, nuts, coconut and so much more. I decided that I wanted to make a smoothie bowl of my own, but using my Herbalife protein powder and meal replacement shakes. This recipe will hopefully be the first of many!

*note: I didn’t even intend this to look so patriotic. It just kind of happened…
