Chocolate Covered Blueberry Smoothie

Summertime is blueberry season, and a delicious and simple way to incorporate these nutrient-dense morsels into your diet is to blend them into a sweet and creamy smoothie confection. What’s extra sweet, is you and the kiddos will adore this one despite a sneaky serving of dark leafy greens making their way into the mix!


Makes:  Approx. (2) 16-ounce smoothies

Time:  5 minutes


1 cup fresh blueberries

1/3 medium banana

3 pitted medjool dates

11/2 tablespoons chocolate plant protein powder

1/4 medium avocado

2 handfuls spinach leaves

1/2 cup vanilla almond milk

1 cup coconut water

6-8 ice cubes


1.  In a Vitamix or other high-speed blender, combine blueberries, banana, dates, raw cacao or protein powder, avocado, spinach, almond milk, coconut water, and ice. Blend on high for 20 seconds and enjoy!

Note:  If using protein powder, omit the dates, as the shake should be sweetened enough by the powder.
