Quick post today since I’m SUPER pressed for time, but I did have to share my post workout meal for today!  I don’t think you could ever go really wrong with a smoothie (especially a chocolate one) BUT there are certain smoothies you just want to last a liiiiiiiii-ttle bit longer…  this was definitely one of those!  Take a gander at this little creation I came up with today… super rich, chocolate-y, coconut-y, crunch-y, and creamy running throughout this tall glass of lovely!

A plain old chocolate smoothie wasn’t going to be quite enough for me today (it was lower power day) so I had to spice things up with a few of my favorite goodies… coconut chia seed pudding, granola, a chocolate Fiber One bar, fat free whipped cream, and one of my rich Square Bars!

Too good for words & gone in 60 seconds… literally gone!

Recipe for the smoothie is below and here is the recipe for the coconut chia seed pudding:

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 5 drops Coconut Sweet Leaf Stevia
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp coconut extract (maybe 5-6 drops to taste)

  • 1/2 cup ice
  • 1 Cocoa Crunch Square Bar (chopped)
