Description

This smoothie by Emily Von Euw of This Rawsome Vegan Life is delicious, decadent, and refreshing all at the same time. It's also packed full of phytonutrition thanks to a hefty serving of superfood green powder. Throw in some chocolate sauce, and a chocolate vanilla chia pudding, and you've got a semi-fancy drink that's great for a quick breakfast, big snack or pre-workout meal.
