Dairy-Free Chocolate Milk Green Smoothie

Julian’s Post workout Non-dairy Chocolate Milk Smoothie

By popular demand, here is the recipe for the dark green/brown/purple smoothie drink I carry around during and after my classes. It is my super refreshing and nutrient dense Chocolate Milk substitute…boy have I come a long way since recommending regular chocolate milk to clients and students for a post workout drink. It is free of dairy, gluten, soy, and processed foods. Clean to the system and very regenerative after any workout.

Makes approx. 16 ounces (i.e. a pint or 2 servings)
Time to prepare: 3 minutes
Equipment: High powered Blender (e.g. vitamix, blendtec, etc.), mason jars

In order of assembly:
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 frozen banana
1 scoop chocolate Vega protein powder
0.25 cup walnuts
1 tbs chia seeds
1 tbs raw cacao nibs
1 tbs gogi berries
2-3 leaves of dino kale
2 handfuls of spinach
2 cups water
2 cups rice milk (or coconut milk or almond milk)
