This bowl is perfect for when you find strawberries on sale or in peak season.

Whenever I find large containers of berries on sale, I buy a lot of them and use them for days... in everything. Whatever I can't use, I just freeze. This is a great way to keep costs down and get in all the nutrients that berries provide. Berries also boost something that most fruits don't, lower carb and calorie content. Try this recipe out the next time that you have a lot of berries on hand. These are boosted with lots of cacao for full on chocolate flavor and serious nutrition benefits. They are also further boosted by the hemp powder, maca powder, and cacao nibs for vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The greek yogurt adds a nice dose of protein.
