Banana 'Not so Green' Smoothie

Banana Smoothie

Most of the smoothies I make I use water but sometimes a creamier texture one is really good.  This is a good one for kids as you can sneak in the greens and they don’t even know it!!!  So it doesn’t look green, I use Cacao so it has a good chocolate taste!!

This is just for one serving, so increase the amounts if need be.

1-2 bananas ( I like to freeze ripe bananas and add one of them, it makes the smoothie nicer I find, but you don’t have to, I know some would disagree with freezing but a bit of both is good)

1 cup almond mylk (now you can make your own or buy it whatever works for you, Almond milk is my favorite for this recipe then Hemp milk but use what you like, I always suggest to stay away from Soy when possible).

Big handful of Spinach

1 Tbsp Coconut Oil

1-2 Tbsp Cacao Powder

I like to throw  Cacao nibs into this one but you don’t have to, blend up and enjoy!!!

Why Coconut Oil and Cacao Nibs??

Coconut Oil – very healthy fat,  they say one of the healthiest on the planet, great nutrition for the hair and skin,  helps with weight loss, a stable oil, our bodies can metalbolize it well

Raw Cacao – powder – this is not commercially processed so it has alot of antioxidants and flavonoids in it.

All chocolate is made from the cacao (cocoa) bean, and cacao beans in their natural, unprocessed, unadulterated state are rich in nutrients and beneficial to health.
