Equipment

  • high-speed blender

Ingredients

  • 1 small zucchini peeled, chopped
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 scoop unflavored collagen I use Vital Proteins
  • 1 cup mixed berries frozen
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 drops liquid stevia I like Nu Naturals
  • 1 1/2-2 cups unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds

Instructions

  • In a high-speed blender mix the milk with the frozen berries until well blended.
  • Then add remaining ingredients and blast until WELL blended. Don't use all the milk at once. Start with 1 cup and keep pouring until you get your desired consistency
  • Once fully blended add 1 cup of ice and blast again. Best served super icy! Top with crushed frozen raspberries and a straw.

Notes

If you are using frozen fruit and veggies you will need closer to the 2 cups of plant-based milk. But if you use all non-frozen you will need less milk.//  And if you use a combination of frozen vs. not frozen, the ration of milk will be less as well. // Pay attention to the thickness as you make your smoothie and use less liquid if you like a creamy smoothie. //
