Guilt-Free Chocolate on Saturday Morning: Chocolate is a Salad Smoothie Recipe

I posted the below picture on Instagram yesterday, and I have to say today’s smoothie recipe kind of brings the truth out of it :)

I was craving something a little sweeter this morning, so I put these fun ingredients in a blender and I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised. It’s a quick and easy recipe too, so hope you enjoy!


  • 1 Frozen banana
  • 1 heaping TBS of chia seeds (mega omegas!)
  • Handful of kale (about 1 large stalk, stems removed)
  • 2 TSP of raw cacao powder
  • 2 dates (or one large Medjool date)
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup of plant mylk of choice (I used organic reduced fat coconut milk, or you could make your own almond mylk)
  • Pinch of Himalayan sea salt
  • Pinch of powdered vanilla bean
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries (to top and stir in, do not blend)
Blend these ingredients and then add whole blueberries throughout. I enjoyed mine with a spoon so each blueberry was a little “chocolately” surprise. It truly was a chocolate salad… blended to perfect and super delicious. For some extra crunch stir in some raw cacao nibs or crushed walnuts! 
Happy Saturday Beauties,
