Chocolate Monkey Breakfast Smoothie

chocolate smoothie

Packed with antioxidants and whole food nutrients, this is a fantastic dairy-free way to power up your body for the day…. or also makes a great snack or lunch.  (For an option with yogurt, see notes below)  And its chocolately deliciousness too!

We have these fairly regularly for breakfast… sometimes with a slice of wheat toast.
