Chocolate Smoothie Recipe: Chocolate Meets Green!
Have you ever wondered if there was a healthy chocolate smoothie recipe? Well here you go! Perhaps you start your day with a green smoothie, I do. Are you ever in the mood to change things up? Or, what if you run out of a key ingredient, as I did this morning? In my case it was the organic orange juice. I’ve tried making my smoothie with just water before… yuck!
So, I looked around and what I made was rather delicious and a nice change. I would recommend it on the weekend (it’s a little too decadent for daily use!) or if it’s late afternoon and you need a little something to tide you over until dinner.
¾ cup organic almond milk – plain. Coconut milk is a good alternative.
2 tbsp organic cacao for a chocolate taste without the sugar or other additives (optional) – if you don’t have this you can try chocolate almond or coconut milk.
1 organic banana
½ cup organic berries
2 large handfuls or organic spinach, kale, bok choy
1 tbsp organic almond butter
½ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cacao nibs (optional)
Put all ingredients in a blender on liquefy until fully blended.
