One word to describe my breakfast today, YUMMY! Have you ever thought of eating chocolate covered strawberries for breakfast? Well I do, quite often, but just didn’t know how to justify it on days other than Valentine’s. Today, it is officially justifiable!
I created a smoothie which in just one small serving has 6 grams fiber, 7 grams protein, and an abundance of antioxidants, vitamin C & E, calcium, iron, and other minerals.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hal-leeee-lu-jah! OK, I know I am bit overexcited about this one, but at first sip it literally tasted like I just pureed a chocolate covered strawberry. So for something to be this healthy and taste so divine is definitely exciting.
Chocolate Covered Strawberry Smoothie – makes one small serving
1 cup frozen strawberries (grab fresh strawberries from the farmers market & freeze)
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 heaping teaspoon pure cocoa powder (use raw cacao if your a purist)
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon agave nectar (or to taste)
Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour in cup. Drink and smile.
