Today’s recipe is sponsored by my friends at MadeGood. As always all opinions and thoughts are my own and I only post about brands I buy and my family loves.
It’s hard to believe that in just a few short weeks the girls will be heading back to school. There is so much to do, but I’m focusing on soaking up these last days of summer break and all the moments before they do. One thing I won’t have to worry about is how they will start their day as I have some fun new healthy ways to start their school days. This Brownie Batter Smoothie Bowl made with MadeGood Chocolate Chip Granola Minis will be on the menu their first week back.
Yes chocolate for breakfast! Trust me, this is mom approved yet so good it will get you major brownie points and maybe even lock in Mom Of the Year! They won’t even know there is a full serving of vegetables in the MadeGood Chocolate Chip Granola Minis!
There are two versatile options, a nutritious healthy packed smoothie bowl topped with Made Good Chocolate Chip Granola Minis, or, for a quick on the go option, a smoothie version paired with MadeGood Chocolate Chip Granola Minis
Packed with protein, fiber, and whole food nutrition to keep your child (and you because you’ll want one too) fueled and focused!
So what’s in the smoothie, a don’t knock it until you try it combo that might surprise you. Especially the secret ingredient… chickpeas! My teen who isn’t a fan of chickpeas loves this smoothie and was shocked when I told her they were in it. She usually can detect them so I was surprised when she couldn’t.
Chickpeas. They are packed with protein, fiber, iron, vitamins and minerals.
Bananas. The fruit adds a little sweetness, potassium, fiber, and carbs.
Non-dairy milk. Select your favorite, whether it be coconut, almond or even a plant-based pea milk. I try to opt for an unsweetened version so I can control the amount of sugar and sweetness in the smoothie.
Dates. Not only are they a natural sweetener, the fruit adds vitamins, minerals and a boost of energy to the drink. They’re also heart healthy and help with digestive health.
Cacao powder. It provides that natural chocolate flavor, antioxidants, and minerals. It also helps reduce stress and balance energy. Chocolate protein can also be used for extra protein and nutritional boost, some (like the one we use) also add in probiotics.
MadeGood Chocolate Chip Granola Minis. They’re organic, gluten-free, non-GMO project verified and contain the nutrients in one full serving of vegetables.
