This smoothie is like having dessert for breakfast. It is rich and filling yet filled with vitamins and minerals. It can be whipped up in just a few minutes, making it a great weekday breakfast option. Be sure to freeze your banana the night before so that everything is ready in the morning.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup packed spinach
  • 1 large banana, previously peeled and frozen
  • 1 cup frozen dark sweet cherries
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs, optional


Add the spinach and milk to the blender and blend until smooth with no flecks of spinach visible.

Add in the frozen banana, cherries, and cacao powder. Blend until smooth using a tamper or scraping down the sides as necessary.

If using cacao nibs, add them in and blend for 10-15 seconds to break them up slightly without blending them into the smoothie and loosing their texture. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
