Chocolate love

I have had the same container of Chocolate Superfood in my cupboard for a few months. It stares me down when I grab my oats or a can of beans… I just cannot stomach it! I cannot stand the chocolate taste and prefer the natural over anything else. However I have created an amazing concoction that will please ANY chocolate and peanut butter lover! (I am so proud of myself!) Actually, it wasn’t my idea, it was Jessie’s idea =)

  • 8 oz almond milk or any other non dairy milk
  • healthy serving of peanut or almond butter (heaping tablespoon)
  • a scoop of Chocolate Superfood
  • a teaspoon of un sweetened cocoa powder
  • sweeten to taste – I used agave syrup
  • ice

Blend it all up and viola! The ice makes it frothy and ice cream like! This was the third day that I created this – third times a charm! Today I added the second teaspoon of cocoa powder and it was perfect! I couldn’t taste the nasty aftertaste of the Superfood.
Don’t get me wrong – I love Amazing Grass and their products, just not the flavored ones. =)
If you don’t have chocolate superfood you can still make this wonderful shake by adding juiced greens like kale and/or spinach. The whole point of this shake is to incorporate your greens into your breakfast or snack without really eating them.

  1. ive never been one to really want to try superfoods but that looks amazo! btwn that and some other crazy choco concoctions ive seen on blogs guys have me totally considering it! 😀

  2. Love the new header!I didn't love the chocolate amazing grass either, so I hid it with chocolate in my shakes. I love that spinach and other greens blend so easily and effortlessly into the shakes.

  3. Oh my! I have been on the fence about trying the Amazing Grass brand {specifically the chocolate superfood} but THIS is sending me to the store tomorrow {not braving the iciness today} and getting a sample pack!!! OH MY, OH MY, OH MY!!Thanks {to Jessie} for this one… there is no way I get enough green-unless m&m's started counting and no one told me!

Share the love!
