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!  

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

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.

-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
