Chocolate Chai Iced Smoothie


What I love about my chocolate smoothies, is that they are anything but chocolate. I pack my "chocolaty" smoothies with tons of vegetables.  Heck there is even frozen broccoli in this one and a lot of it.

Green smoothies are my favorite. Your kids would never notice the difference and neither would you. And this is why I love eating clean. There is nothing in this smoothie that is processed.  You know your body is getting the BEST.  And that means you will feel your best!  


WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
3/4-1 cup frozen broccoli (stems and trees)
7 frozen cucumbers
1 handful spinach
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 medium size frozen banana
2 heaping tsp. raw cacao powder 
a pinch of nutmeg, cinnamon, cardomom
ice or additional frozen cucumbers
Optional-1 capful sugar free vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:
1. In a high speed blender blend broccoli, spinach, cucumbers, 1/2 frozen banana and coconut milk until icy consistency.  
2. Then add in remaining 1/2 of banana, raw cacao, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cardamom. Blend.
3. optional: add ice or additional frozen cucumbers and blend again, this time not entirely smooth.  Small chunks of the cucumber or ice should remain.

TIPS:
-If you don't have all the spices don't worry!  Just add what you have!! This smoothie is delicious even without the spices.  But the Raw Cacao is a must.
-For an icier version add in more frozen cucumbers, and for a more chocolaty version add more Raw Cacao.

Serves 1

Enjoy!! xx Julie
