I have to be honest, I am not a huge fan of Valentines Day, but I’ll always take a good excuse to create festive recipes that involve berries and chocolate. How could I resist?

This Chocolate Mixed Berry Smoothie Bowl is low in sugar, but high in flavor and nutrients. Why a smoothie bowl and not just a smoothie? First of all, everything is more fun when you eat it out of a bowl, right? Second of all and most importantly, I always like to add toppings so that I can chew my smoothie instead of just drinking it. Chewing nutrient-dense food is imperative because without chewing, our bodies don’t produce adequate enzymes for absorbing those nutrients. So regardless of whether or not you drink your smoothie from a cup or a bowl, add some chewable toppings to get those enzymes working!
