Blueberry-Cacao Smoothie

Click here to watch me make this recipe:

Hey guys! I just finished filming a new smoothie recipe to give you an idea on how to use the magic bullet. If you're a chocolate lover like me, this is a great treat to make any time of the day and you can easily add more greens without sacrificing taste. If it's not sweet enough for you, feel free to add more sweetener or thicken it up with a ripe banana. Enjoy!

3/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (wild, if possible)
1/2 cup frozen spinach
1/2 scoop protein powder (optional)
1 tbsp maca root powder
1-2 tbsp raw cacao powder, to taste
1 tbsp ground flax seed (mixed w/ 2 tbsp water)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
5 drops liquid stevia (or sweetener of choice, i.e. honey, maple syrup)

Also optional: 1 banana
