Warm Chocolate and Rose Smoothie Lovers Bowl

Warm Chocolate and Rose Smoothie Lovers Bowl

Roses are red, violets are blue I love this smoothie and I hope you do too!!! Smoothies are a great way to kick start the day but they also make a delicious snack for you and your loved ones. When I make a smoothie it normally for breakfast. In the winter I like to warm them through. Warmer foods in winter are better for the stomach.

The cold weather can increase the blood pressure and it may cause anxiety. Eating warmer foods in winter can help to alleviate the uneasiness. Plus rose petals and raw cacao powder can help to stabilize the blood sugar levels and relive stress. That’s why warming foods always feel soothing in winter. The smoothie is a delicious dish to have on your own but it’s even better shared.

Warm Chocolate and Rose Smoothie Lovers Bowl

Warm Chocolate and Rose Smoothie Lovers Bowl was a huge hit with me. Yes that’s right I’m in love with myself!!! I will make this for my little family in the future but I just wanted to try it first. The smoothie was creamy, rich and very warming. The best part about this smoothie is you can make it the night before and just simply heat it up before you want to eat it. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
