Chocolate Berry Superfood Smoothie!
1 cup non-dairy milk. I like almond milk.
1/2 cup organic blueberries *Superfood!
1/2 cup organic strawberries *Superfood!
1/4 cup organic raw cacao nibs *Superfood! (I used Navitas Naturals brand found at local Sprouts market)
1-2 TBS peanut butter, almond butter, sunflower seed butter
Optional: If not sweet enough for you, you may add 1-2 tsp. raw organic honey *Superfood!, maple syrup, or other sweetener
Directions: blend all ingredients and try not to have your mind blown by the fact that you just had 3 servings of fruit, about 13 grams of protein, about 15 grams of fiber, and packed with flavonoids and antioxidants from the cacao and fruit. What's that? It tasted better than the best milkshake or smoothie you ever had? I know. Hard to believe.
