Instead of sugar, this smoothie bowl adds sweetness by using dates. Hemp seed, almond milk, and protein powder add protein giving you close to 30 grams per bowl.

Frozen Blueberries Better For You Than Fresh >>>
1¼ cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup frozen spinach
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1 Medjool date (optional for sweetness, or try stevia, banana, or maple syrup to taste)
1 scoop vanilla brown rice protein (I love Vega Vanilla Protein + Greens)
Optional: 1 tsp spirulina, dash vanilla extract
Toppings of choice: cacao nibs, fresh fruit, granola, cereal, coconut, goji berries, etc.
1. Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender (I used my nutribullet) and blend until smooth and creamy. It will be thick.
2. Pour into bowl and top with desired toppings.
