A rich, indulgent chocolate green smoothie (smoothie with greens).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Begin by blending the dates, cocoa powder, protein powder, soymilk, and water (if needed to help your blender along). The mixture should be completely smooth.
  2. Next, add 2-3 oz spinach to the blender. Blend again, stopping to push the spinach down into the blender container if necessary.
  3. Add the next 2-3 oz spinach, and blend again until the mixture is completely smooth.
  4. Pour into a glass and enjoy your antioxidant-filled treat with 2 servings of fruit and a whopping 4-6 servings of vegetables!

I was pleasantly surprised by this smoothie! I used four California pitted dates, about 3/4 cup of vanilla unsweetened almond milk, a rounded tablespoon of raw cacao powder a large handful of spinach, omitted the water, and I added a tablespoon of hemp protein powder. It's very rich and chocolately! I can't tell at all that there's spinach in it. And my hemp protein adds a nice nuttiness to it. Thank you, HighVibe!

This is a good smoothie. I have been enjoying another smoothie recipe by this chef, Recipe #266414., but realized this morning that we had run out of orange juice so I decided to try this recipe. I omitted the water and instead used about 1 cup of ice to make this a frosty smoothie. I used 2 Medjool dates. I added 1/2 a frozen banana. Next time I may add an extra 1/2 T cocoa. Tasty!

Wow! This is really good. I made it twice today so I could try it with carob powder too. I used cashew milk made in the style of Recipe #295198 and started with just that and the dates. Then I threw everything else in for a couple minutes. Yummy! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
