Using Frozen Spinach For Chocolate Spinach Smoothie Bowls
I used frozen spinach here. I like to find already frozen spinach on sale and stock up. Also, it’s nice to get some deals on fresh spinach and freeze it myself. It’s really easy because all that needs to be done is to wash the spinach, pat it dry, store it in an air-tight container, and place it in the freezer.
Raw Cacao for Chocolate Spinach Smoothie Bowls
This raw food smoothie bowl features a hearty dose of raw cacao powder. Raw cacao powder is basically cacao beans that have been dried and fermented and then ground up into a powder that’s not quite as fine as regular cocoa powder. It’s delicious and is very good for you!
Watermelon in a Smoothie?
I always add a few chunks of frozen watermelon to any smoothie. Sometimes I have watermelon saved and frozen from summer surplus. Other times, I just buy it, even in the winter, and cut it into chunks and throw it in the freezer.
Watermelon is awesome for reducing inflammation and any water retention. It’s also sweet and full of hydration so therefore it’s a pretty easy hack to just keep some in the freezer and add it to a daily smoothie or smoothie bowl.
