Happy Wednesday, Everyone!
It’s officially midweek so that means many of us are hitting a wall and are desperately waiting for the weekend! But there’s good news! Did you know that what you put INTO your body directly affects how your body performs? Trying to incorporate vitamins and minerals into your meal choices will greatly improve your energy level, your focus, your sleep patterns, and more!
So, in an effort to help support Andy & I in our journey towards better health, my mom generously offered to loan us her Vitamix blender.
And we are LOVING IT!
Andy loves all things fruity flavored, so finding smoothies that he enjoys is pretty easy. However, I am more of a choco-holic. Especially since giving up Diet Coke, I have been craving chocolate much more often. So, the question was… how can I make a healthy Vitamix smoothie that I feel good about drinking, but that still tastes like chocolate?
After a few unsuccessful tries, I found one that worked! And it is delicious! But don’t just take my word for it, try one for yourself! If you don’t have a Vitamix, this recipe should still work in a Ninja, Bullet, or regular blender. AND this smoothie can be used for breakfast, lunch, supper, or a quick snack!
I can’t wait to hear what you think of it! Have a fantastic rest of the week!!
Greens + Chocolate Smoothie
- 1/2 cup Chocolate Almond Milk
- 2 cups Fresh Spinach
- 4 Ice Cubes
- 1/2 tbsp Chia Seeds
- 1 tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 1 Banana
- 1 tbsp Honey
Place all ingredients into Vitamix and blend until smooth & well combined.
Pour into your favorite mug or cup.
Drink and Enjoy!
If you'd like to double the recipe and save some for later, add 1/2 avocado or a little greek yogurt. That way, you can enjoy the rest of your shake tomorrow without having to construct a new one!
