Introducing my newest creation & love at first drink:
The MACA MOCHA green smoothie!
After a particularly grueling workout the other day I ravenously scanned my fridge. The left over coffee that I had chilling in an Epson Jar, begged to be used in a green smoothie. My creation exceeded my expectations and gave me mad amounts of energy.
Almost 20 grams of protein
About 140 mg caffeine
Antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, & all that jazz
1-2 servings of green leafy veggies ( depending on how “generous” your handful of spinach is)
2 servings of fruit
Peanut butter, banana, chocolate, & coffee (can’t go wrong with this combo if you ask me!)
Maca-Mocha: GREEN SMOOTHIE
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Generous handful spinach
- 1 TBSP raw shelled hemp seeds “hemp hearts”
- 1 tsp Maca powder
- 1 heaping TBSP cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cocoa nibs
- 2 TBSP peanut butter
- 2 ripe, frozen bananas
- 12 oz. cold coffee (I used left over coffee from the previous day)
- 2 oz. unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
BLEND WELL, TOP WITH COCOA NIBS & CINNAMON.
Note: If not using a high-powered blender, blend the liquid and spinach first. Then add remaining ingredients and blend well, stopping to scrape down sides of the blender as needed.
I hope you love it as much as I do!
Move, breathe, drink your greens, count your blessings, and be well!
