Chocolate Almond Smoothie Bowl

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Chocolate for breakfast? Yes, please! Chocolate can help boost your brain power and still help you start the day in a healthy way. This smoothie bowl blends bananas that offer potassium and magnesium with antioxidant-rich berries and mineral-rich greens. The almond butter supports satiety for good appetite control, lasting well into the lunch hour. You can add protein powder to bump up the protein content on this breakfast bowl. It can also be enjoyed as a snack (or dessert) or you can save it as two small portions for a lighter serving.
