Irwin’s Chocolate Smoothie YouTube
We have someone close to us who wanted a smoothie that was nutritious, delicious but did not look green in color or have bananas. He also wanted to gain weight.
This recipe can be made in any high speed blender. Rick made it in our Nutribullet because Irwin is a single guy.
1 large handful of chopped Kale or any leafy green
1/2 small beet
1 small or 1/2 large Carrot
1/2 cup blueberries (can be frozen)
1/3 cup Naked Juice Green Machine
1/3 cup Naked Juice Mango
1/2 cup Pomegranate Juice
1 heaping tablespoon of freshly ground, no salt added peanut butter (peanuts only ingredient)
1 – 2 tablespoons Cacao Powder
Stainless Steel Smoothie Straws
1 -2 tablespoons Oats
1 heaping tablespoon ground Organic Flax Seeds
Place all ingredients in Nutribullet. Add water to maximum fill line.
Screw on blending wheel lid.
Blend (shake gently while blending) until smooth (about 10-15 seconds).
Optional ingredients: Avocado
