Superfood Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

This Superfood Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie is packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory superfoods, from cacao and cacao nibs, to gut-healing cauliflower and iron-rich spinach. The frozen cauliflower adds creaminess without you needing to add a banana! And the coconut is a healthy fat that helps your body absorb all of the nutrients from the mint and spinach. The cacao nibs make you chew your smoothie, which slows down your consumption and creates mindful eating. 


What (your ingredients):

3 large handfuls spinach

15 leaves fresh mint

2 tablespoons raw cacao

2 medjool dates

½ cup frozen riced cauliflower

1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract

5 pieces frozen coconut

1 cup oat milk

1 cup cold water

2 tablespoons cacao nibs


How (your directions):

Add all the ingredients, except the cacao nibs, to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

Add the cacao nibs and blend for 10 seconds.

Enjoy immediately!

Why (the science):  Cacao powder and cacao nibs are powerful anti-inflammatory superfoods that tastes like chocolate (without the sugar!) and the riced cauliflower adds gut-healing fiber.
