CHOCOLATE KALE COOKIE SMOOTHIE

This cacao and kale creation is crazy healthy and happens to taste like double chocolate chip cookie dough!  Now how good is that?!?

Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.  For only 33 calories per cup, you get loads of amazing goodness - fibre, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and even 3 grams of protein!

Kale and chocolate go surprisingly well together.  Thankfully, we are happy kale eaters in my family, but for any non-salad-lovers out there (or parents with them!), this is a fantastic way to get in some extra greens.

For 2 servings, blend together until smooth:

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk

  • 2 handfuls fresh baby kale

  • 1 frozen banana

  • 2 scoops or packets collagen peptides (omit for vegan)

  • 1/4 cup raw pecans (pre-soaked in warm water for 6 hours then drained to improve digestion)

  • 2 pitted Medjool dates

  • 2 Tbsp raw cacao powder

  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds

  • 2 Tbsp lucuma powder

  • 2 tsp maca powder

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp matcha powder (optional)

  • pure stevia or raw honey (nonvegan) to sweeten as desired

Sprinkle with raw cacao nibs or toppings of choice & serve!
