This smoothie is called the Super Smoothie because it is bursting with things that are great for you. There’s tons of antioxidants, protein, and Vitamin C. And no added sugar! The natural deliciousness of the blueberries really masks the flavor of everything else which is nice especially if you’re weirded out at the thought of drinking raw spinach (which you can’t taste at all!).
Domestocrat’s Blueberry Chocolate Super Smoothie (yields one smoothie)
1/4 cup frozen blueberries
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tsp. ground flax seed
2 tbsp. chocolate protein powder
1/2 tsp. cocoa powder
1/4 cup unsweetened, vanilla almond milk
4 tbsp. light coconut milk
One big handful of baby spinach
Add all of the ingredients to a medium sized (12 oz.) mason jar. Looks appetizing, no?
A mason jar will fit perfectly on your blender with the blender blade attachment. Simply screw it on to the bottom of the jar exactly how you would with the full sized blender container. It couldn’t be simpler. I used a 12 oz. mason jar here but I think any size (except wide mouthed jars) will work here.
This recipe is perfect to drink right after it’s blended or to make ahead for the next day. The mason jar is a handy way to have a delicious and nutritious smoothie when you’re on the go. I love making this the night before and having a stress-free breakfast waiting for me.
