This has been a CRAZY BUSY week. I love being a multi-passionate entrepreneur and all the variety that splashes into my life. But, I know I’m getting a little too busy when I’m spending more time at my computer than in my kitchen. Yesterday I decided to play with my chocolate for breakfast smoothie. I think I shocked a few of my fans when I posted this photo on my fan page. But seriously? It’s a delicious way to go green. If you’re new to my chocolate for breakfast world, I’m a self-professed chocolate aficionado. I find a way to incorporate chocolate into my diet almost every day. Okay, every day. But who’s counting? Today I added a different twist to my signature smoothie because I was in the mood for cinnamon. Not just any cinnamon. I like Vietnamese cinnamon. Here’s the new variation. I’m calling it “sprinkle and sip” because I sprinkled the cinnamon on top, several times.
Sprinkle & Sip Chocolate for Breakfast Smoothie
1-2 bananas (peeled, sliced and frozen)
2-3 leaves Swiss chard (no stems), kale, spinach and/or Romaine lettuce
8 oz filtered water
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon carob powder
1 tablespoon maca powder (optional)
1 cup frozen raspberries
1 ripe pear
Blend all of the above in a high-speed blender. Pour some into a “happy” glass, sprinkle with Vietnamese cinnamon, and sip. Delicious!
