  • 3/4 cup dairy free milk , I used cashew
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 dates
  • 1 tablespoon pea protein
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon finely ground espresso
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla bean powder , or you can use vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 12 ice cubes


  • Add everything into a blender.
  • Blend until smooth and creamy.


  • You can sub brewed coffee for some of the milk, but the result won’t be as creamy.
Tips to prep ahead:
  • Put all the ingredients except the milk, spinach and ice into containers or bags to make one week worth of prep. The dump into a blender the day you are making it.
