Sweetheart Smoothie



Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and for some reason, I’ve been craving chocolate covered strawberries. I decided to make a chocolate strawberry smoothie. Instead of using chocolate, I used the superfood “carob” powder. Carob is actually made from the Carob tree of the Mediterranean. It can be used as a substitute for cacao or cocoa. It’s high in fiber, B vitamins and iron. And, it tastes absolutely delicious! It satisfies  any chocolate craving you may have!

Recipe:

•1 banana

•1 1/2 cups almond milk 

•8 strawberries 

•2 tbs carob powder

•1 scoop Plantfusion vanilla bean powder

Blend all the ingredients with ice, if it’s too thick, you can add a little water. Enjoy!
