Guess the secret ingredient in this chocolate berry smoothie bowl

Guess the secret ingredient in this chocolate berry smoothie bowl


With the right ingredients, it isn't difficult to mask the taste of vegetables in most culinary creations. After all, not everybody particularly enjoys munching on leafy greens straight-up at the crack of dawn.  Stay energized in the morning by slurping on something that is tasty and good for you in equal measure. The secret is to overwhelm the flavour of cruciferous vegetables with a tango of other tastes: chocolate and vanilla protein. Nobody would ever be able to guess that there's spinach in your smoothie bowl. Packed with maca, avocado, spirulina, and protein powder, this chocolate berry smoothie bowl is packed with nutritious surprises.
