Who says you can’t have dessert for breakfast?
This chocolate raspberry smoothie bends all of the rules and infuses your morning routine with a kiss of sweetness. In fact, the flavor combination of raspberries and chocolate is so tasty you might find yourself whipping up a second batch for an afternoon pick-me-up.
Not only will this vegan smoothie make your taste buds dance, it’s also fantastic for your body. Raspberries have anti-inflammatory superpowers and contain antioxidants that fight against cancer and heart disease. Plus, almond milk is loaded with essential vitamins and minerals that promote healthier and younger looking skin. To top it off, the protein powder will keep you feeling full longer, which will prevent the urge to reach for that mid-morning snack.
• 1 1/2 cup almond milk
• 2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
• 1/2 cup sprouts, such as broccoli or alfalfa
• 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
• 2 scoops vegan protein powder (try Navitas Naturals Hemp Powder)
Whirl all the ingredients in a blender until smooth, adding more liquid until desired consistency is reached. Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately.
