Maca-Mocha {GREEN SMOOTHIE}

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. ย The left over coffee that I had chilling in an Epson Jar, begged to be used in a green smoothie. ย My creation exceeded my expectations and gave me mad amounts of energy.

The highlights:

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

  • Time: 5 minutes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Generous handful spinach
  • 1 TBSP raw shelled hemp seeds “hemp hearts”ย 
  • 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.

ENJOY!

 

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!

 

XO,

Hali
