This paleo Chocolate Almond Smoothie tastes like a rich and creamy nutty chocolate bar. Sweetened naturally with ripe banana and dates, it is packed with protein and keeps me feeling full all morning.
Can you think of a better way to start your day than with chocolate?
This paleo Chocolate Almond Smoothie is our favourite go-to breakfast when we want a change from our other morning smoothies, (or when I don’t want to run out to the garden in my PJ’s to pick some kale for a green smoothie.)
Made with almond milk, almond butter, banana, dates, cocoa and hemp seeds, this Whole30 smoothie is a rich and creamy high-protein way to get your day off to a great energizing start!
Substitute your favourite non-dairy milk for the almond milk, or use cocoa instead of cacao if you prefer. It will still taste like chocolate heaven.
Just whir everything in a blender, grab a glass or a travel mug and begin your day with a burst of energy.
Your body will be grateful.
