Yesterday I introduced you to Curate Snacks and we were chatting about how difficult it can be to create new recipes and flavor combinations. One thing I love about Curate is they’ve spent endless hours in the kitchen curating unique ingredient pairings and flavor profiles to inspire and invigorate your snacking routine. Well, this is the sequel to yesterday’s post but today, I teamed up with them to create this amazing smoothie recipe for all of you! I actually whipped up this smoothie on Good Morning America earlier today; check out the video!
Get to know the Salted Decadence Bar: say hello to your new go-to snack that will curb all of your sweet and salty cravings! Marcona almonds are paired with quinoa, hemp seeds and sorghum as well as dark chocolate, almond butter and a touch of sea salt to create an out-of-this-world snack that is good for you! This soft yet textured bar is going to be your new go-to. Slightly salty and sweet, the dark chocolate chunks seriously melt in your mouth as you crunch on buttery marcona almonds. It is seriously so good!
The smoothie: this one is a keeper for sure. I get totally annoyed with chocolate smoothies that are more fit for dessert and by dessert I mean you might as well have eaten a brownie! I purposefully kept the sugar and calories in check with this guy. While the chocolaty goodness shines though it is by no means overly sweet. Add to that I loaded this smoothie with good-for-you nutrients in the form of almond butter, hemp seeds and cooked sorghum. Oh, and banana is the root of the mild sweetness!
