Chocolate Almond Smoothie

Despite its rich, chocolaty taste, you’re actually getting greens, protein, healthy fats, and a lot of vitamins and minerals to power through your day. Delicious and strategically nutritious—that’s the Alkamind Strength Living™ way.

This smoothie is the perfect on-the-go breakfast or afternoon pick-me-up. My kids love it as an after-dinner dessert—I still haven't told them about the 2 handfuls of spinach I sneak in.

Ingredients: (Serves 1) 

  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk from a carton
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1⁄2 Hass avocado, peeled and pitted
  •  2 tablespoons raw almond butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • Optional: Add cacao chips or coconut shavings on top


  1. In a blender, blend together the spinach and almond milk until smooth. 
  2. Add the banana, avocado, cacao powder, almond butter, and cinnamon and blend until smooth.
  3. Drink up to power up.

To add fat-burning, plant-based protein to this superfood smoothie, I would add in a scoop of Acid-Kicking Plant-Based Protein: Chocolate.

It will make it even more chocolatey, give you 20 grams of top-quality protein, and add in even more alkaline ingredients such as sprouts, flaxseed, and Sacha Inchi.
