Superfood Chocolate Smoothie Bowl (Cacao & wheatgrass)

Cacao wheatgrass smoothie bowl 18


This smoothie bowl is great for days when you really want a chocolate fix yet want to be healthy. The deep chocolate flavour (from the cacao powder and cacao nibs) is balanced with creamy banana and avocado. This smoothie bowl is also free from refined sugar. Smoothies don’t get much better than this! This really does taste like a decadent chocolate pudding…but healthy! And, it doesn’t take much to convince the kids to eat it too.

So what is in it? It is packed with goodies: cacao powder, cacao nibs, goji berries, chia seeds and wheatgrass. The taste of wheatgrass can be for the discerning palate, but when it is mixed in with the other ingredients, it is unnoticeable and yet you reap the nutritional benefits!

Why take wheatgrass? Wheatgrass is an incredibly nutrient dense source of anti-oxidant vitamins A, C and E. It is also rich in B group vitamins and minerals like potassium and calcium. It has been attributed to a range of benefits, from cancer prevention, immune system and digestive system support, healthy hair and liver detoxification.
