I’ve been on a smoothie craze lately, as you’ve probably noticed from my Sunrise Smoothie, Shamrock Shake, and Vanilla Chai Smoothie. But, that’s because it’s such a perfect on-the-go breakfast or afternoon pick me up.
This latest creation is a superfood smoothie filled with cacao, coconut, hemp seeds, and my favorite staple ingredient, Greek yogurt. Blend it all up with some Blue Diamond Almond Milk Coconut Milk Blend and you have a chocolatey treat perfect for breakfast, a snack, or even as a healthy desert!
Blue Diamond’s blend of almond milk and coconut milk is like the BEST of both worlds! Sometimes I have a hard time deciding between the two and with their blend, now I don’t need to!
This is actually the first time that I’ve ever tried hemp seeds, and I now I must say I LOVE adding them to smoothies! Hemp seeds are one of the TOP superfoods out there.
