Silken Raw Cacao Smoothie Bowl

chocolate Smoothie Bowl, raw cacao, ceylon cinnomon, silken soy, wild blueberries

Full of energy – boosting superfoods. The blend of healthy carbs and protein will keep you fuller longer, and full of energy.

Why these ingredients?

Cacao Powder, Cacao Nibs are raw, unsweetened chocolate in its natural state. It has not been heated and retains an enormous amount of antioxidants.  It offers copper, magnesium, zinc, and manganese. Cocoa powder, and 100% unsweetened dark chocolate can be used as well. (not exactly the same benefits, but cost less)

Bee Pollen is sweet and is a complete protein. It offers vitamins A, C, Iron and other vitamins, and minerals. (I have never had any adverse reaction, and I have used it, since the early 90’s) It is a known allergen, though.

Ceylon Cinnamon is known as “True cinnamon” and has medicinal and antioxidant qualities, unlike its counterpart “cassia” cinnamon, which is more commonly sold on supermarket shelves. Ceylon cinnamon from Sri Lanka is lighter in color, sweeter, lightly fragrant, and in stick form softer in texture (flaky) It also contains less coumarin. Cassia Cinnamon from Saigon, China or elsewhere is darker in color, pungent, bland and in stick form extremely hard. Once you have real, true cinnamon you will immediately know the difference.

Wild Blueberries are much smaller than regular blueberries, but have a bolder blueberry flavor, and are said to have twice the antioxidants of regular size blueberries.

Not sure if it was that my bananas were rock hard solid, the tofu, or the blender, but the consistency of this smoothie bowl was really good.  It was like eating chocolate banana ice cream for breakfast, but healthier.
