COMBINE all ingredients in blender, adding lemon juice to taste. Puree until smooth.
This smoothie is great for you and it tastes good too. Blackberries are amazing for you and they are a great source of Vitamin K which helps you absorb calcium. The cinnamon adds a little spice!!
1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
1 cup coconut water or unsweetened almond/coconut/hemp/rice milk
1Tbs ground flax or chia seeds
1⁄8 tsp cinnamon
1 handful of spinach
Splash of vanilla extract
Tbs raw, organic honey or stevia to taste (optional)
I like this one because the texture from the hazelnuts overpower the taste of the spinach… you can’t even taste it!
CHOCOLATE SPINACH CRUNCH

I love this Kale smoothie with Banana and Pineapple
1/2cup coconut milk
2 cups stemmed and chopped kale or spinach
1 1/2 cups chopped pineapple (about 1/4 medium pineapple)
1 ripe banana, chopped
Combine the coconut milk, ½ cup water, the kale, pineapple, and banana in a blender and puree until smooth, about 1 minute, adding more water to reach the desired consistency.
