As I prepared my smoothie this morning, my plan was to stick to the cabbage-apple-oats smoothie recipe that I made yesterday.
However, as I was making it, I had a change of heart. As I was drinking my smoothie, I got this – radical – idea to add some…. chocolate to my cabbage smoothie.
It turned out quite delicious, so I tried a few different combinations and I have to say, it’s hard to not like this chocolate smoothie. You can have it for breakfast, as a snack, or for dessert.
You can also give it to your kids – and they will never know they are drinking their cabbage.
Yummy Chocolate Smoothie Recipe
As I said, I had no intention of making a chocolate smoothie.
So, I started out with some of the usual ingredients for a breakfast smoothie, including these:
The smoothie turned out quite tasty, and it looked really pretty in the glass with cinnamon sprinkled on top, but it still seemed to be missing something “je-ne-sais-quoi.”
And then, as I was taking photos of it (that’s my new addiction- I take pictures of my smoothies, like new mamas take pictures of their newborn babies)– it hit me.
This may seem like a radical idea for a breakfast smoothie with cabbage and oatmeal, but why not?
I mean just putting cabbage and oatmeal together is radical. How much worse can it be?
So here it is, in it’s full, delicious glory.
