Chocolate Kale Smoothie

BySarah Axtell, ND June 4, 2014

This smoothie satisfies your chocolate cravings while at the same time providing excellent nutrition. Cece and Lulu know this as “chocolate milk.”

It has cacao nibs in it, which provide a nice crunch and a huge burst of nutrition. Cacao is one of the best food sources of magnesium, which helps relax the mind and body. This smoothie also contains super-food kale. I am always looking for more vehicles to get my family to eat more kale, and smoothies just happen to be a great one!

You can make this for breakfast, afternoon snack or desert.

Chocolate Kale Smoothie

  • 1 cup almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 handful of chopped kale
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tbsp cacao nibs (found in bulk section at your health food store)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 2 scoops vanilla or chocolate protein powder (I prefer pea protein)

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend and enjoy!
