I’m writing this as I’m enjoying this refreshing chocolate milkshake of sorts. Super healthy, you can enjoy this for breakfast, or as I’m doing, a mid-afternoon snack. It’s even great for dessert! If you love frothy chocolaty drinks, this should satisfy you.
I added just a dash of coffee to my smoothie today. I did not add a date, I think it is sweet enough as it is, but I’ve been drinking green smoothies for quite some time already. I did not add any of the optional seeds as I already had them in my morning smoothie and this is just a sweet chocolaty snack. Enjoy!
1 frozen banana, broken into three chunks
2 cups spinach (give or take, depends on your green tolerance)
1 cup alternative milk of your choice (reduce slightly if adding coffee)
1 T natural cocoa powder
4 ice cubes
optional: 1 pitted date if you prefer more sweetness
optional: a little cooled coffee, to taste
optional: flax, chia, hemp seeds for omega-3’s
Add ingredients to a high-powered blender, blend until smooth and spinach is pulverized. The better you blend our spinach, the more cell walls you break and the more nutrients you unlock.
