This is by far one of my favorite post workout smoothies. It’s also fantastic when I am craving sweets! You can’t even taste the spinach, so be sure to add it! 🙂 I put one cup of packed frozen spinach leaves, but you can always increase the amount. I think when you are first trying out these “healthier” smoothies with hidden greens, it’s good to start out with a cup of the greens, and then increase the amount as your palate changes. I buy the bags of pre-washed spinach leaves and then I put them in freezer bags and freeze to use them in smoothies. Enjoy!
1 cup cashew or almond milk
1 cup packed frozen spinach leaves (I buy them and freeze them myself)
4 dates (pits removed)
2 very ripe frozen bananas
2 tablespoons natural creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons extra dark unsweetened cocoa powder (if you don’t have extra dark you may need to increase the cocoa powder to make it more chocolaty)
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
- Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy.
