Chocolate Blueberry Superfood Smoothie

Chocolate Blueberry Superfood Smoothie

  • Yield: makes 2 large or 4 medium smoothies 1x


  • 1 cup warm water
  • ¼ cup raw almonds
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 banana, sliced and frozen
  • 1½ cups frozen blueberries
  • 2 cups baby greens (I used half kale, half spinach)
  • 1 tablespoon hulled hempseed
  • ½ tablespoon maca powder
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 pitted Medjool dates
  • ½ teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt


  1. To a measuring cup, add the warm water, almonds, and cacao nibs. Allow to sit until the water reaches room temperature, 15-20 minutes. This allows both the almonds and cacao nibs to soften up just a bit before you blend the smoothie. You can also do this ahead, like the night before you want the smoothie.
  2. Pour the water mixture into a blender, followed by the almond milk.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients and blend on high until completely blended and smooth. Add ice if a thicker consistency is desired.
  4. Pour into glasses and enjoy while cold.
