This consists of six basic ingredients you likely always keep on hand and it can be ready in no time. Chocolate for breakfast, count me in! How could this not be good, though? It has three of the best flavors, banana, peanut butter and chocolate all together in one decadent morning treat. Note that the sweetness of this smoothie comes from the ripeness of the bananas so be sure to use some that are well ripened.

Blueberry Acai Bowl

Make a Blueberry Acai Bowl In 8 Simple Steps

If we’ve learned anything from our Instagram feed lately, it's that smoothie bowls are one of the biggest breakfast trends out there—and for good reason. Whether packed with leafy greens, tropical fruit, or creamy avocado, these super-bowls are filling, nutrient-packed, and most importantly, absolutely delicious.
