Recipe: Double Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

double-choc smoothie bowl

Yesterday I got weighed and measured at personal training and it turns out that in the last month I have lost nearly 5% of my body fat in 4 weeks (I weigh only a little less too, so I've obviously gotten some muscle, woohoo). Normally I'd like to have a cheat meal that night to celebrate but I am trying to stop doing that (psychologically I use food as a reward and I'm still learning to wean myself off that habit), so I decided that I would make myself a bit of a sweet treat for breakfast, nowhere near as bad for me as the burritos I wanted to have last night. This isn't something I would eat on a regular basis just because it is SO sweet and SO rich, but it was nice to enjoy something a bit different on a lazy Saturday morning.
