Who doesn’t love a nutrient-packed smoothie that tastes like a chocolate frosty?
My delicious chocolate smoothie recipe has become one of my favorite go-tos: I seriously make it for me and my boyfriend at least once a week—and he loves it, too. The blend has anti-inflammatory benefits and important minerals like potassium and iron.*
How, you might ask? The secret ingredient is mindbodygreen’s organic veggies+ green powder, which features dark green leafy vegetables, hard-to-find sea veggies , and antioxidant-rich fruits. It even contains various ingredients that support digestion and gut health, include probiotics, prebiotic fibers, and digestive enzymes .* Anytime I can sneak in extra nutrition, I will, which is why I love using organic veggies+ in a variety of ways.
In this recipe, I also mix in other nutritious ingredients, like bananas and almond butter, to create a well-rounded meal with protein, fat, and carbs. Plus, the addition of cocoa nibs provides a boost of iron and fiber.
Bottom line: this nutritious chocolate smoothie is sure to keep you fueled up and feeling good. 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 serving chocolate collagen (could use regular collagen and add 1 tbsp. cocoa powder)
1 frozen banana (or a regular banana + a handful of ice)
2 tbsp. creamy almond butter
2 tsp. cocoa nibs
