Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 1 serving
Ingredients
  • 2 standard-size ice cubes
  • ½ yellow banana
  • 1 small handful mixed greens or baby spinach- optional
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened almond or hemp milk (the picture shows rice milk, but I actually prefer almond milk or hemp milk- I occassionally choose rice milk because of the lower price)
  • ⅓ cup reduced/lite fat coconut milk (Trader Joe's is my fave!)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon flax seed meal
  • 1 Tablespoon MCT oil- optional
  • 1 Tablespoon almond or peanut butter
  • 27 grams (1 scoop) PurePaleo Protein- Chocolate flavor (Designs for Health brand)
Instructions
  1. In a high-speed blender, combine all ingredients except the protein powder.
  2. Once mostly blended, add the protein powder while the blender is running (this helps prevent it from clumping).
Notes
Banana- you can freeze peeled banana in slices or halved. If you add frozen banana to your smoothie, omit ice cubes.

Mixed greens- If you want to use this smoothie as something that can be made with items that can either be stored in the pantry or freeze, try freezing your mixed greens. You will never be able to tell the difference once they are blended into a smoothie!
