Spirulina Pumpkin Seed Smoothie with Cacao Nibs

Serves 1

Ingredients:

- 2 cups leafy green of your choice (spinach, romaine lettuce, etc.)
- 1/2 cucumber, chopped (and peeled if not organic)
- 1/2 zucchini squash, chopped (for a nice creamy flavor!)
- 1 tsp of Hawaiian Spirulina powder
- 2 full drops of NuNaturals vanilla liquid stevia
- 1 cup unsweetned almond mick ice cubes (freeze these beforehand)
- 2 TBSP organic, raw unsalted pumpkin seeds
- 1 TBSO coconut oil or coconut butter (or feel free to sub in almond butter if you prefer)
- 2 cups large ice cubes

Garnish:
- 1-2 tsp raw caco nibs

Optional:
- 1 scoop vegan vanilla protein powder or use hemp seeds or chia seeds instead of pumpkin seeds


Directions:


1. Add all the ingredients in the order listed to your blender. If you don't have a high powered blender, you will need to break the ingredients up a good bit, and add about 1 cup of additional liquid most likely to get it going. If you have a high powered blender like a Blendtec, simply add the ingredients, press the smoothie button, or use the ice cream button for a thicker, frostier blend. For the Vitamix, you'll need to use the tamper ( plunger) to get it going.
2. Once everything is blended, pour into 2 glass jars and have both for a meal replacement, or have one for breakfast and another later on. Just be sure to put a lid on your jar if keeping it in the fridge since more air oxidizes the greens quicker.
3. For serving, top with a few cacao nibs, and perhaps additional pumpkin seeds.
4. Enjoy and feel energized all day!!:)
