The Insanely Good For You Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie


A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of chatting with Pure Organic creator Veronica Bosgraaf. She spoke about how she started the brand after her young daughter decided to become a vegetarian. Being a Midwest gal, Bosgraaf scrambled with the idea but wanted to support her daughter in this endeavor. She explained the struggle of finding delicious snacks that would help supplement the protein that her child needed. 

After a pop-quiz on ancient grains, Veronica whipped up an amazing smoothie packed with the benefits from grains such as hemp, flax, and cocoa.... yup, chocolate! Here's what you need to make this smoothie for yourself.

Ingredients
2 cup unsweetened almond milk, cold
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp hemp hearts
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp ground flax seed
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Blend until smooth and serve.
