In a smoothie rut? This coconut, chocolate and almond butter smoothie is packed full of flavor and lots of nutritious goodies.

Smoothies are one of my favorite ways to jump-start my morning. I'm usually not in the mood to cook when I first wake up, so I throw together a few ingredients and make myself a smoothie. This indulgent morning (or dessert) smoothie is packed full of almond butter, cacao nibs and coconut. So delicious and perfect for any time of the day.
