Sometimes cravings can lead to wonderful creations, this smoothie is one of them. I wanted spice, preferably heavy on the cinnamon, and I wanted chocolate. These 9 am cravings led to this delicious chocolate pumpkin pie smoothie and trust me, pumpkin pie spice is twice as nice with chocolate (I mean let’s face it, everything is better with chocolate, am I right?).
Honestly this tasted like a pudding. A thick creamy chocolate mousse pudding for breakfast = WIN. Surely this can’t be healthy??? But it is!
This indulgent smoothie bowl contains 3 of your 5 a day, healthy fats, fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory spices.
