It’s the day after Valentine’s Day and I hope that each and every one of you had a good, if not great, day. Mine was filled with some yummy vegan food, more importantly, desserts! But, now, it’s back to being good and that’s why I have this delicious (but ugly) concoction of a smoothie for you!
This is the perfect smoothie to help you transition from decadent Valentine’s Day foods, back to healthier eating habits. It has luxurious, raw Cacao Powder that’s full of antioxidants, a banana for potassium and to use as a natural sweetener, chia seeds for fiber and protein, and kale which is a nutritional powerhouse in its own right; you can’t forget the orange for that boost of vitamin C. Overall, this smoothie has a lot going on and is great for you.
Serves: 1 Large Smoothie
- 1 Frozen Banana, in Chunks
- 1 Medium-sized Orange, Peeled
- 3/4 Cup Kale, De-stemmed
- 1/4 Cup Navitas Raw Cacao Powder
- 1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
- 1/2-3/4 Cup Water
- Place all ingredients in a blender and puree completely, making sure that you completely break down the kale (which can be a little tough and fibrous). Add ice cubes to your smoothie if you would like it to be colder (or if you do not have a frozen banana on hand).
