Chocolate Almond Butter Greenie
Makes 1 serving
2 leaves kale, stems discarded
1-2 tsp spirulina (I use this kind)
1-2 tsp almond butter (or peanut/sunflower butter or tahini)
2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 scoop clean protein powder of your choice (optional). I used this one today.
1/4 cup water (or more for a thinner consistancy)
1/2 cup ice
Hemp hearts (I use this kind)
Sprouted granola (I use this kind, I’m obsessed with it lately. Or this kind)
Add all ingredients to blender (except ice) and blend well. Add ice next and blend until smooth. Use a rubber spatula to scrape smoothie out into a bowl or cup and top with hemp hearts and granola.
