A Decadent Mexican Chocolate Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Chocolate for breakfast? Yep, it's possible.

Chocolate for breakfast? It's not too good to be true. This Mexican chocolate smoothie bowl features dark chocolate almond milk, along with chopped chocolate, for a creamy meal that's way less sugary than your typical chocolate treat.

Thanks to Greek yogurt, tofu, and roasted almonds, along with the almond milk, this smoothie bowl packs a powerful 11 grams of protein, no meat required. And if you substitute the Greek yogurt for a plant-based option, the recipe can be made vegan, too. (Want even more substitutions? You can always swap out the almonds for another type of chopped nut to top your bowl with, or sub in other fruit for the fresh raspberries.)

This smoothie bowl is packed with nutritious, plant-based goodness—and it's just as tasty as its higher-calorie counterparts. The best part? Despite the rich chocolate and fruit flavors, this recipe has just 14 grams of sugar in each serving.

And if you're wondering where the "Mexican chocolate" factor comes in, it's all in how this smoothie bowl is seasoned. The ground cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla add extra flavor to this delectable breakfast. Cinnamon and chocolate are a classic combination in sweet Mexican recipes; if you haven't tried the duo before, this is a great place to start. (Plus, adding a pinch of cinnamon to the top of your hot cocoa? Game-changing.) The added seasonings and flavors won't overpower the chocolate and the fruit—the ingredients all work together to make one delicious and healthy breakfast option.
