Maca Cinnamon Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

cinnamon chocolate smoothie bowl

Spring has been unusually cold, and the chilly temps have us craving something sweet and nurturing. This  thick, creamy, chocolaty smoothie bowl really hits the spot (without the guilt).

Like other smoothie bowl recipes, this requires a little bit of prep the night before to create a really thick base in the morning; from there, it’s as simple as making a standard (yet extra delicious) smoothie.

  • 1 packet Be Well Sustain protein powder
  • 1 cup almond milk (or non-dairy, non-soy milk of choice)
  • 3 Tablespoons chia seeds

  • 1/2  teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon maca
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 Tablespoon cashew butter
  • 2 ice cubes

Toppings:

  • Raspberries
  • Banana
