I'm so happy I found these chocolate buckinis by Loving Earth - they are so delicious to sprinkle on top of smoothies or I have even been taking some in a tupperware container to munch on throughout the day like a type of trail mix. I'm going to have to try out a homemade version of this sometime soon! This morning I sprinkled it on top of a delicious rosewater berry smoothie. This smoothie is as wholesome and nutritious as it is pretty and delicious - the rosewater gives an added level of flavour that means this smoothie makes a delicious breakfast or a healthy dessert.
