A low carb chocolate smoothie bowl so pretty and delicious it will banish your ice cream cravings! This healthy alternative is sugar free – it’s perfect for breakfast or as a treat.
Sometimes I just want something beautiful for breakfast.
With a few berries thrown in.
Something easy to make and a bit decadent.
This low carb Chocolate Smoothie Bowl hits all of those sweet spots for me.
It’s like a thick chocolate milkshake but it’s good for you. I know. It doesn’t look like it’s healthy. But, it’s a sugar-free protein smoothie using one of my favorite low carb protein powders, Isopure.
I could eat this every day. EVERY DAY.
Although it’s the middle of winter I still crave ice cream and this thick and creamy, chocolate smoothie takes care of that craving toot-suite.
And, it is so easy to make. The blender does all of the work for me. I just add ingredients, push a button, et voila; the magic happens and I have a bowl of chocolate heaven in a minute.
Thank goodness for modern appliances! I’m a gadget junkie and couldn’t live without my blender. I’m sure you feel the same?
You might be wondering why is this a low carb chocolate smoothie bowl and not a low carb chocolate smoothie in a glass? Well, putting it in a bowl with my favorite fruits and nuts on top was infinitely more pretty and 100x more fun, of course. Everyone should have a little bowl of beautiful in the morning. Dontcha think?
How will you decorate yours?
