Recipe: 2-for-1 Rich Thick Chocolate Green Smoothie

Serves 2 (easily doubled)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 ripe Avocado or 1/2 cup Oats
  • 2 cups unsweetened vanilla or plain Almond Milk, or Water for a dark chocolate smoothie
  • 1 medium Banana, very ripe
  • 3 tbsp Cocoa powder or raw cacao powder
  • 2-3 tbsp ground Flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp Cashew Butter*
  • 2 cups Spinach
  • 4 Dates
  • Ice cubes, optional

* I didn’t have cashew butter so substituted a couple of tablespoons of almonds.

Blend until smooth.  Refrigerate for a few hours if you want this as a pudding instead of a smoothie.

Enjoy.
