- 1/ 2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/ 2 ripe banana
- 1/ 4 ripe avocado
- 1/ 4 cup fresh mint, tigthly packed
- 1/ 4 cup spinach, lightly packed
- 1 tablespoon almond butter, unsweetened
- 2 pitted medjool dates
- Pinch of kosher salt
- 1 cup ice
- 1 tablespoon cacao nibs
In a Vitamix or high powered blender, add all the ingredients in the order listed to the blender, except for the cacao nibs. Using the smoothie mode, blend until smooth, adding the cacao nibs at the very end to crunch into smaller pieces without pulverizing.
Alternatively, turn the blender to medium for about 20 seconds to break down the ice before blending on high speed until smooth, adding in the cacao nibs at the end.
You'll know you have the perfect ice ratio when the smoothie burps at the end of a blend. Serve immediately.
