    Bonnie, what is “ground sweetened cocoa powder”? And/or how can I make this myself? This recipe sounds good. Thank you for what you do.

      Ground sweet (as opposed to unsweetened) cocoa is sold in many stores ranging from fancy types (Sarabeth’s) to basic types (Trader Joe’s). They do contain sugar, but you don’t need a lot to get that rich, delicious flavor of cocoa. A little really jazzes up a cup of coffee, too!

      You’ll have to let me know what you think. All of my recipes are carefully kid + hubby tested and approved! Tough crowd here! 😉

    What kind of berries do you suggest? I’m just starting to use shakes for breakfast, but thought this sounded good! I do make a shake once in a while for lunch.

      Be creative! I love raspberries and you can buy them frozen any time of year. Smoothies are a great home for all sorts of fruits and veggies. Thanks so much for writing!

    Can diabetics have this smoothie?

      You can have this smoothie as long as you count your carbs and fit it into your meal plan. It needs to be balanced and calculated into your day.
