  • 1 1/2 cups any milk I use water along with a few tablespoons of full-fat coconut milk

  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 4-6 ounces yogurt I used coconut milk yogurt
  • 1/4 Haas avocado

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder I use Dagoba, Hershey's was top rated in Cooks Illustrated
  • 1 date pitted
  • Dash of sea salt optional
  • Stevia to taste or raw honey as preferred
  • A handful of ice cubes for an extra frosty beverage optional

Instructions

  • Place all ingredients in the order listed in a high-powered blender and process until smooth and creamy.

Notes

For protein, we use either Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides or Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate, these do not thicken the shake. You could also use a favorite protein powder, 3 tablespoons raw cashews or almonds, or cottage cheese.
