Cacao and Cardamom Protein Smoothie Bowl

LeitchyCreates

Smoooooothie time! Maybe a little to late as the sun has now got back to hiding but maybe it will do the job after a hot and sweaty workout instead! This is one of my favourite ever combos, cardamom and chocolate! Which does make me ask myself why I haven't created a bar using cardamom and cacao... but you know! I've planted the seed and all that hah! Anyway, this is a cardamom and cacao smoothie paired with peanut as its a perfect match and tart raspberries for contrast (blueberries work well too). I've used two of my NEW products, one to take the chocolate peanut flavour to a whole new level and to add crunch and substance too! Enjoy xx
