Raw Chocolate Smoothie

Yield: 2 servings

 

Ingredients:

1 apple, chopped

½ banana, broken into pieces

1 handful dark leafy greens

2 cups water kefir (or filtered water or coconut water)

1 scoop of pumpkin protein powder (21 g)

2 Tbsp chia seeds

2 heaping Tbsp raw cacao powder (raw chocolate)

½ cup unsweetened almond milk

 

Directions:

  • Blend all ingredients, except the almond milk, in a blender or high speed blender until smooth.
  • Add the almond milk and blend briefly again. The chia seeds will thicken this smoothie as they absorb some of the liquid, so you might want to add more water or almond milk.
