Double Chocolate Smoothie Bowl aka Chocolate Craving Buster Bowl

I call this my 'Chocolate Craving Buster Bowl' for good reason. As many others, I have a thing for chocolate and I try to find a healthy balance to include this in my diet.

This smoothie bowl more than satisfies any chocolate cravings and the best part is that once I've had a bowl, I don't want or need anything chocolate for quite some time afterwards.

"Life is short. Eat dessert first."

~ Jacques Torres

I suppose you could consider this a breakfast, but I think of it as more of a dessert. It's just that chocolatey and just that good!
