Green Silk Smoothie

Ohhh baby, you will looooove this smoothie! It literally tastes like silk. With the combination of chlorophyll, almond butter & banana, it truly feels very balancing :) Chlorella is the richest source of chlorophyll (plant's blood), & spirulina offers iron, calcium, & beta-carotene (among other benefits). The addition of cocoa helps bring flavours together, but it isn't really noticeable. I made this in order to learn how to budget my smoothies. This costs me less than the ones I usually make, & may even be my new favourite!






From my kitchen, to yours <3

Ingredients:
1 cup water
1 tsp chlorella
2 tsp spirulina
1-2 cups leafy greens
