- 1 frozen banana- chopped into pieces
- 1 handful spinach
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp raw cocoa nibs
- 1 tbsp maca
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup coconut milk (can use any dairy free milk)
- 3 dates
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- handful of ice cubes
- 1 scoop of plant protein (optional)
Place all ingredients in blender, blend on low and gradually increase speed until you no longer hear the blender chopping. Blend until smooth, top with cocoa nibs and mint. If using this as a base for a smoothie bowl, reduce milk by half.
Something about this smoothie is so comforting and delicious! It’s fresh yet hearty enough for for a meal replacement. In the summer leave as is, or add some ginger and nutmeg in the fall. I love the topping on this because you get the freshness of the mint when you take a sip and the slightly sweet crunchiness of the cocoa nibs, I’m a texture girl so I have to have something crunchy on there! Let me know what you think or how you customize this one for you!
