Chef A.J.'s Rockin' Smoothie

My daughter actually likes it! AND she knows it has spinach in it!

Vegan Chef Abbie Jaye presented this at the McDougall Vegan Celebrity Chef Weekend in Santa Rosa in June. These are not her exact measurements, but how I tend to throw it all in the blender. Blend well after each addition. This tends to make enough for two--or one very large one.

Blueberry Smoothie

8 oz non-dairy milk
5-6 dates
1-2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 banana
1 cup frozen blueberries
4-6 oz pomegranate juice
1 tbs cocoa powder
1-2 tbs ground flax seed
(my addition)

Blend like crazy...
I tell you no lies...
This smoothie will make you happy, healthy and wise!

AJ sent me her original recipe for this Smoothie...

Nutrient Rich Chocolate Smoothie


6 ounces of unsweetened Almond Milk
4 ounces of Pomegranate Juice
6 ounces organic baby spinach
1 banana, frozen
Dates (or date paste) to taste
3 Tablespoons Raw Cacao Powder

Place all ingredients in a high power blender and process until smooth.

Chefs Notes: When available, AJ likes to use 1 cup of blueberries and one cup of cherries
