Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls are one of my ultimate favorite things to eat for breakfast. They’re so easy and really fun to decorate. Of course I’m trying to find some way to put colors and patterns together. This mint chocolate chip smoothie bowl is decadent and filled with antioxidants.
The spinach and avocado creates the green hue in this bowl. Spinach contains at least 13 different flavonoid compounds that function as antioxidants and anticancer agents. The stems contain more fiber than the leaves, so blend them in!
Tip: Add a damp paper towel in your plastic bag of spinach to keep it fresher longer.
