Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup cocoa powder OR chocolate protein powder (for less sugar)
  2. 1 tbsp agave nectar OR 3-4 dates
  3. 1/4 cup coconut coffee creamer (found at health food stores like Whole Foods or Sprouts) -- optional
  4. 4 baby carrots
  5. Small handful, kale
  6. Small handful, spinach
  7. 1/4 large avocado (skinned)
  8. 1-2 cups ice
  9. 10-12 raw almonds
  10. 2 tbsp coconut flakes (not shredded, if possible)
  11. 1 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chips or carob chips
Instructions
  1. Blend cocoa/protein powder, agave/dates, veggies, and ice in a high speed blender like a Vitamix on high speed. If using a Vitamix, use the tamper to push all ingredients repeatedly into the blades until you have four glossy, creamy mounds.
  2. Drop speed to Level 4, remove the plug in the lid, and drop in almonds, coconut and chocolate/carob chips. Use tamper to push these ingredients into blades so they are chopped and retain some texture. Serve and enjoy.
Notes
  1. If you don't have these specifics veggies, use any mild vegetables; squash, cabbage, collard greens, etc.
  2. If you are trying to reduce sugar, use Stevia instead of dates or agave nectar, and protein powder instead of hot cocoa. Raw cacao will work, but you will need to add one of the above sweeteners or else the mix will come out bitter. Unless you like that sort of thing.
