Cacao in Your Green Smoothie

A great alternative to the original. Cocoa powder provides yummy antioxidants, and the fruits and veggies have tons of potassium to help flush out all that sodium.

1 cup unsweetened soy milk

3 generous handfuls of organic baby spinach leaves*

1 ripe banana

2-3 clementines, peeled and frozen

a pinch of sea salt

a few drops of vanilla extract

2 tablespoons of high quality cocoa powder (try Valrhona)

Blend all ingredients on low and then on high until very smooth. Add water as needed while blending if the smoothie is too thick or if your blender is a little wimpy. Serves one hungry person or two people who just need a snack.

*Organic produce can be more expensive or more difficult to find, but it's probably worth it to buy all your green leaves organically grown. Studies have shown that conventionally grown greens are a major source of pesticides in our diet, partly because of the high surface area of all those leaves.
