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.
1 1⁄2 frozen bananas (or 1 whole avocado)
1⁄4 cup whole natural almonds
3⁄4 cup kale, stems removed, chopped
3 tablespoons unsweetened Dutch (dark) cocoa powder
1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop pea protein powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon spirulina powder (optional)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
- Serve and divide the smoothie mix immediately into two serving bowls and top with your choice of toppings. Enjoy!
