Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Smoothie Bowl

Tired of smoothie after smoothie? Make a smoothie bowl. Similar principle, different experience!  It's nice sometimes to get the feeling like your eating, rather than drinking something.  Sometimes it's more satisfying. So here's my take on it.

You will need:

*1 Scoop protein powder (I used Beyond Yourself Choc Chip Cookie Dough)
*2/3 C Vanilla Yogurt of choice (I used Iogo Original)
*1 tsp vanilla
*A few drops of stevia (or sweetener of choice)
*Ice (I used about 7-8 cubes
*A little water (or milk of choice) - to get things moving in the blender
*1/2 protein bar (I used Kellogg's Double Chocolate Protein Bar)
*2 tsp unsweetened coconut

*Additions - I added 1 TBSP each of chia & psyllium husk, you could also add flax, seed, coconut oil, etc.

- Add all ingredients (except bar & coconut) to blender (I use a VitaMix) & blend away! 
- Top with chopped protein bar & coconut.
