Spookylicious Smoothie Bowl

Let's "creep" it real, avoiding sugar and sweets around the holidays is pretty depressing. However, this tasty Halloween-inspired smoothie bowl is the perfect way to celebrate and satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthier way. 

Sure, a mini candy bar isn't going to do detrimental damage to your body. It's all about being aware of what you are putting in your body, because one mini candy bar can easily turn into six... and now you have a stomach ache and no energy! Getting into the practice of nourishing your body with real food not only tastes good, it also feels good. 

This carrot mango smoothie bowl is a blend of 100% carrot juice, frozen mangos, frozen bananas, almond milk, collagen peptides, and chia pudding! Topped with crushed pecans, green apples, kiwis, cacao nibs and almond butter. You won't even be thinking about that candy bar.
