Chocolate Superfood Smoothies

Let me just put this out there first…I have ALWAYS had a sweet tooth, like eat all the icing off the cake type sweet tooth. So when I started hearing people say that their Shakeology helped with their cravings for sweets, well, I was skeptical to say the least. BUT I did a little research and gave it a try.

And it has made ALL the difference! So now I share it with everyone I come across because when you find something good, you share it, right?! 😉

Since I’ve now been doing this whole superfood smoothie thing for a while now, I figured it was high time I shared a few of my favorite recipes with you! And what better recipes to share for a recovering sugar addict than the CHOCOLATE ones! So check out my 5 favorite chocolate superfood smoothie recipes below (and hit me up if you need to snag some Shakeology for yourself)!

For each of the recipes, combine the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Yep, it’s that simple!

Cauliflower-Crust Pizza

I don’t know about you, but we love a good pizza night around here. But our typical go-to always leaves me feeling blah for the next day or so. I wanted to switch it up and make and had heard great things about the cauliflower-crust pizza trend, and we love cauliflower mash. So I decided to go for it, and I’m so glad we did!!!

Need a lighter alternative to your typical pizza recipe? Try this easy Cauliflower-Crust Pizza for a change! It's light and super tasty!

I love that this is a perfect way to get some extra veggies in and to cut the carbs on a normally carb-heavy dish. My husband was skeptical at first, but both he and my 1-year-old loved it! Continue reading

Healthy Salted Caramel Mocha

I’ve committed to being more intentional with my time this year and giving myself a little more “me time.” It’s often still a struggle, but I know it’s an important component of my health! So finding some fun options that really make me want to take that time has been another one of my priorities.

Looking for a fun way to switch up your typical coffee? Try this rich, decadent coffee combo with smooth foam, all of the flavor, and none of the junk!

One of my favorite ways to spend a bit of that time is sipping on a warm cuppa something. 😉 Most of the time, I stick with black coffee, but every once in a while, I like to switch it up. With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought something a little rich and chocolatey would be the way to go, and this Salted Caramel Mocha definitely delivered! It has all the goodness with none of the guilt, so what could be better!  Continue reading

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

I’m all the time looking for quick, easy breakfast options that give me a complete meal without all the fuss. I’ve found that smoothies are a great way to achieve that.

While my daily superfoods smoothie is usually my go-to, I like to mix it up once and a while, so I put this easy combination together. I mean peanut butter and banana…I’m not sure there is a more classic combination!

Need a quick, easy and balanced breakfast smoothie with a classic flavor profile? Give this Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie a try! Continue reading
