#Choctoberfest is in full swing over here on Cookaholic Wife! If you missed yesterday's post, I found the best way to combine your morning coffee AND a filling breakfast.
Some people think that when you chose or are forced to go dairy free it means you miss out on a lot of sweets. While in some cases that's true, I've quickly found that if I'm okay with substituting a smoothie for a milkshake I can still add in tons of delicious flavors. I opted to call this a smoothie versus a milkshake because its much thinner without the thickening agents of the ice cream and milk.
Another sponsor for #Choctoberfest is Barlean's who has a hug variety of awesome, healthy products. Disclaimer: I received Barlean's Chocolate Silk Greens, Essential Woman Omega Swirl Chocolate Mint Flavor and Butter Flavored Coconut Oil for free to use as part of #Choctoberfest. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
If you have a chocolate craving or an intense sweet tooth, this smoothie is going to satisfy both!

Optional: to thicken the smoothie you could add a banana or ice. And if adding the banana makes you decide you want to drink this for breakfast, well, you'll find no judgement from me! 🙂
