Cacao + Greens Post Sweat Smoothie

Hello readers, I’m back from vacation and I’m bringing you a delicious, refreshing smoothie recipe to celebrate my return! Back from the mountains and so happy to be returning to the KITCHEN (and my dogs and normal, convenient showers), hopefully this chocolatey smoothie will make up for my absence.

The other afternoon I was looking for a chocolate-y treat to get me through the afternoon slump, but I had just worked out so I did not want to get sugar-crazy. My savior? Amazing Grass Chocolate Greens!

I have to admit that the first time I tried mixing this green powder I had trouble masking the taste of the greens and enhancing the chocolate flavor I love so much. With some experimenting, I found a decadent combination. I can’t wait for you to try it.

Ahhh, Green Powders – a love/hate relationship. I don’t always rely on green powders for my smoothies. Truthfully, I like having control over what greens/veggies go into my smoothie and the powders don’t always taste great. Still, they offer a lot of convenient if I’m low on produce, I’m in a hurry or like today, when I want CHOCOLATE FLAVORED GREENS! Because chocolate is the best. Duh
