Proof is in the pudding, or smoothie.
There’s no doubt about it friends, this post contains two of my all-time favorite things: chocolate and smoothies. Even before going gluten-free 8 years ago, and grain-free 2 years ago, chocolate and smoothies sustained me. Especially during college…
And when the two of those favorite things collide, it’s a beautiful thing.
Chocolate smoothie love.
Yes, this isn’t my first rodeo with chocolate smoothie things. They’re perfect for breakfasts, lunches, snacks, dinners, and my hubby may be known to ask for one after the kids are in bed at night. I kid you not. He likes my peanut butter banana smoothies with cocoa added in just as much as ice cream!
Some of my favorite chocolate smoothies are:
- Chocolate Almond Butter Pumpkin Smoothie
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie
- and it’s not technically a smoothie, buttt… Chocolate Peppermint Frosty
Long ago, on an Instagram feed far, far away…
If you’ve been following my IG account (which you should be, btw!) you miiiight remember a pretty little sweet potato smoothie bowl that I shared a while ago. It’s been a long while ago. Like, two years this week! No matter how long, though, I haven’t forgotten this beauty of a bowl.
Back then it was a crazy idea to stick a sweet potato with chocolate, not it’s sorta normal. And fortunately, after the past two years on the GAPS diet, I can handle sweet potatoes again, every now and again. And you better believe it – if I get the chance to have a sweet potato, it’s gonna be in this smoothie bowl!
Chocolate sweet potato smoothie bowl.
I know, I know. Sweet potatoes might be perfect for fall, but smoothie bowls? Not so much. Unless you’re like me and live in the south. Where it’s still in the 90s, even though it’s October! Perfect time for smoothies, my friend.
But don’t worry, this smoothie won’t freeze you out. There’s actually not even any frozen ingredients in it, unlike most smoothie bowls. Just chilled sweet potato and cold milk. If you want to add in some ice, that’s fine. Just don’t add too much or it’ll make the smoothie less appropriate for a bowl. You could always serve it in a cup, though, if that’s your thing.
