Healthy Smoothie Recipes - Sneaky Chocolate Smoothie

When it comes to healthy smoothie recipes, you can't get much healthier than this Sneaky Chocolate Smoothie... a smoothie that's packed with healthy things - even spinach! - that kids love. It sounds like a dream come true, right?

But honestly, our society tends to believe that everything with chocolate is unhealthy. I am out to prove them wrong!

In addition to raw spinach, this smoothie recipe also boasts almonds, and raw honey three foods on the list of the

Top 25 Foods to Get Your Vitamins. We use this recipe for breakfasts or snacks. My husband has even served it as dinner in a pinch... it seems that daddies seem to get away with that sort of thing.

And... if your children are unaccustomed to drinking green things (my kids probably think every smoothie is either green or chocolate), no worries - the chocolate perfectly disguises the spinach. No need to divulge your secret to picky eaters.

If you're new to coconut water, be sure to check it out. Admittedly, this recipe works just as well with plain water, but the extra electrolytes in coconut water give this smoothie its pick-me-up qualities. Combined with iron and chlorophyll from the spinach, it's like getting a blood transfusion!

To make this a raw smoothie, be sure to use raw ingredients, like raw almond butter, raw cocoa, and unpasteurized coconut water.

This recipe is:






2 bananas, broken in chunks

2 c raw spinach leaves

1+ c coconut water, chilled

1/4 c Almond Butter

2 Tbsp cocoa powder

2 Tbsp Raw Honey

Handful of ice cubes


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Add more coconut water if smoothie is too thick.

Serves 2.
