Mean Green Hemp Machine

Now, I've been making smoothies for years, but I've never felt like my smoothies reached the level of blogger-status. 

That is, until NOW! (Aka until I decided I needed to take a couple of pictures BEFORE I began my consumption of this delicious treat, and not once it looked like a half-empty cup of green poo). 

For 1 smoothie:

1 frozen banana

2 pitted medjool dates

2 tbsp hemp protein 

1 handful spinach

1 tsp cacao nibs

1/2 tbsp almond butter (you can use peanut butter, or my fav, Barney Almond Butter with vanilla and espresso!)

1/4 cup cashew milk (can sub for almond or your fav nondairy)

1/4 cup coconut yogurt

1/2 tsp agave

For topping:

1 tbsp thick shredded coconut

1/4 c buckwheat groats

cinnamon to taste

....anything you want!

I enjoy this baby with a spoon, but if you're on the go, maybe try a straw and blend your toppings! Or try one of those slurpie straw-spoons. Can you buy those? ;)
