It’s always surprising how spinach can subtly sneak into a sweet recipe. We teamed up with our friends at Green Blender to bring you a breakfast smoothie recipe that’s as sweet as a cookie.
A protein and nutrient-packed cookie, that is… Spinach contributes beta-carotene. This “ provitamin” converts to an active form of vitamin A called retinol, which is crucial for skin cell renewal and helps improve skin tone and elasticity.
This breakfast smoothie also contains cacao nibs, a superfood that’s loaded with antioxidants called flavanols, which improve the flexibility of your blood vessels to promote heart-health and brainpower.
