Chunky Monkey Smoothie
(makes 2-3 servings)
8oz milk of choice (I use raw milk and/or almond milk depending on what’s around) 1-2 frozen bananas (they’ll thicken it, sweeten it, and are easier to digest this way) 1-2 tbsp of natural nut butter 2 scoops of raw cocoa 3 big handfuls of spinach 2 tbsp chia gel* Optional for extra boost: 1-2tbsp greens mix powder, 1-2tbsp protein powder
Blend until smooth. You can adjust the amounts to make only one serving but these keep well in the fridge and make a great afternoon snack!
*To make the chia gel, put 1/3c chia seeds in a mason jar, add 2 c filtered water and place in fridge until thickened. Scoop tbsp from that jar. This way you’re adding hydrated chia to your smoothies and boosting your hydration as well as the overall nutritional value.
