Chock-Full Chocolate Surprise
drink your veggies
Looks and tastes just like a chocolate milkshake but is chock-full of nutritious greens, fruits and vegetables.
1 cup (240ml) unsweetened soy, rice, hemp, or almond milk (strained if homemade)
½ tsp Probiotic Powder (optional)
½ Cup (22g) firmly packed baby Spinach
¼ Cup (25g) frozen Broccoli (about 2 florets)
1 Banana, plus more to taste
½ ripe Pear, cored, plus more to taste
1 Cup (120g) steamed Cauliflower Florets (cooled completely), or an extra Banana (to save time if you don’t have a bit of leftover cauliflower)
2 Tbsp Navitas Naturals Cacao Powder or unsweetened cocoa powder, plus more to taste
2 tsp natural Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsp pure Maple Syrup, plus more to taste
1 Cup (125g) ice cubes
Throw everything into your blender and puree on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. Tweak flavors to taste (you may like a bit more banana, pear, cacao, vanilla, or maple syrup).
