Chocolate Super Smoothie

This smoothie tastes like a chocolate shake without all the unnecessary added sugar.  Surprisingly, this smoothie has fruits, vegetables (trust me you can’t even taste them), and some added powders for additional benefits.  That’s what makes this smoothie so healthy for you, thus named appropriately Chocolate Super Smoothie!

I cannot for the life of me remember where I found this recipe.  If I discover where I found it, I will include the link to the original recipe.  I do remember that the original recipe did not include flax or maca and maybe not even the protein powder.  I included these to make the smoothie even more “super”!

Chocolate Super Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond milk*
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 5 baby carrots
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Optional: 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • Optional: 1 tsp maca powder
  • Optional: 1 scoop protein powder (I used Sunwarrior Vanilla)

Directions: Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and creamy!

*For a thicker shake, use less almond milk.

This recipe (with all optional ingredients) yields approximately 425 calories and 25.5g protein.
