I’m on a bit of a smoothie kick lately, so I decided to reinvent what I blend in the morning! Banana, kale, beet, and apple is great and all… but I wanted something new! There’s so many delicious and healthy super foods you can eat for breakfast that kick start your mind, body, and soul. Plus when they taste like dessert, well, that’s not a bad thing at all! Bring in the mint mocha almond dream smoothie! 

One of my favorite brands is Giddy Yoyo. They make THE BEST raw chocolate around, and they’re Canadian! It’s the healthiest and most nutrient dense thing you can buy in a package, anywhere. Period. I was inspired to use my favorite mint chocolate bar of theirs for a rich, delicious, and nourishing smoothie. Raw chocolate and raw cacao is totally allowed for breakfast and it should be part of your diet now. It contains the most antioxidants of any food and is high in magnesium, iron, zinc, omega-6 fatty acids and lots of other things.

I won’t be surprised if this puts you into a chocolate smoothie craze, because that’s what happened to me! Keep the dessert-y smoothie train going with the chocolate chip banana power smoothie and the frozen chocolate cherry smoothie.
