The Chocolate Monkey is my version of a meal replacement smoothie that is very healthy and very tasty. There are variations I have done with coffee and different fruits, but this one is the one I made today and it was tasty.
Smoothies are a great way to make a tasty and nutritious meal. My wife usually make two and split them into those blender bottles (pictured) and that is our lunch. It is super fun to try new combinations and they are so healthy as long as you avoid added sugars and other process stuff.
Stick with all natural and add leafy greens. You can add 1/2 to a whole bag of spinach and it doesn't add anything to taste but makes it super healthy.
