Chocolate peanut butter smoothie bowl
Taking in a high protein, high fiber breakfast can help get you through a busy morning. You can even make this bowl in the evening, cover, and refrigerate. Add the toppings in the morning so cacao nibs stay nice and crunchy. Don’t worry, even though they look like chocolate, cacao nibs don’t contain any sugar and do contain all the antioxidants and phytochemicals that cacao has to offer.
