  • 1 cup organic almond milk
  • 1/2 cup frozen sweet cherries or organic raspberries
  • 1/2 ripe organic banana
  • 1 cup organic baby spinach leaves
  • 1-2 tablespoons organic cacao powder [Note: not cocoa powder – it doesn’t provide same health benefits]
  • 2 or 3 dates soaked with stem and pit removed. (Another option is date sugar – simply made by pulverizing dates, therefore a whole food.)
  • 2 teaspoons organic chia seeds or ground flax
  • 1 Tablespoon organic cacao nibs Optional

Instructions
 

  • Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and combine until smooth, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Depending on whether you like the cacao nibs whole, you can add them at the end so that they remain whole and crunchy.
