This velvety chocolate smoothie is a real treat that also comes with a trick. Hidden inside are all the healthy superfoods you need for energy and vitality. So if green drinks are not your thing, this one’s for you because all you’ll taste is delicious dark chocolate.
1 cup almond milk
1 ripe banana
1 tbsp (tablespoon) organic cocoa powder
1 tbsp almond butter or peanut butter
2 dates (pitted and chopped)
1 scoop Super Green Juice powder
A few ice cubes
Blend all ingredients and enjoy! To simplify the recipe replace the almond milk, cocoa powder and dates with chocolate almond milk.
For added texture in your smoothie, add a few whole almonds and 2 squares of organic 70% dark chocolate. For an extra think smoothie, try chopping and freezing the banana ahead of time.
Decadent and dark, cocoa powder may boost endorphins, the feel-good factor for mood. Plus it is heart-healthy and supports healthy blood pressure. Deliciously sweet dates are full of fiber to aid digestion, deliver natural vitamin A and contain over a dozen minerals.
Almonds give a mild nutty flavor, pack some plant-based protein, and come with natural vitamin E. Banana adds a smooth creamy texture and a bump of potassium to replenish minerals.
A scoop of Super Green Juice powder provides 44 organic superfoods full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics, and plant protein.
