Berry Chocolate Candy Bar Smoothie


This is how I work some extra dark leafy greens into my kids' diet. Rich, chocolaty, and packed with anti-oxidants and vitamins. The perfect way to detox in the midst of a decadent holiday season. Add extra maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla or salt if needed. Enjoy!

4 servings


  • 2 cups chopped kale

  • 1 ½ cups frozen blueberries

  • 1 ½ cups whole milk

  • 1 ½ cups apple juice

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries

  • ¼ cup maple syrup, or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, or more to taste

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 pinches sea salt


  1. Blend kale, blueberries, milk, apple juice, raspberries, maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and sea salt together in a blender until smooth.

Cook's Notes:

Any type of dark leafy green (chard, spinach, etc.) can be used in place of the kale.

Any type of milk (cow, goat, almond, coconut, etc.) can be used in place of the whole milk.

Grade B maple syrup is less expensive, richer in flavor, and less processed than Grade A. Three cheers for the under-dog!
