Dark Chocolate Coconut Smoothie Bowl

This Decadent (Clean!) Dark Chocolate Almond and Coconut Smoothie Bowl Is to Die For

Straight from celebrity chef Candice Kumai's latest cookbook is this dreamy recipe for a dark chocolate and coconut smoothie bowl. "[It's] a delicious, clean, and simple way to start the mornings in one simple bowl," Candice says. (But we think this would be a tasty treat any time of the day!)

When putting together her cookbook, Candice focused on healthy recipes that will make the body feel good — especially after a period of not-so-great eating. Instead of a detox, Candice suggests a reset, to "undo damage from a period of indulgent eating, retrain taste buds and give the body a fresh start." Let's take a look at this dessert-like, protein-packed smoothie bowl that definitely fits the bill.
