Instructions

  1. Blend all ingredients except cacao nibs and granola in a high-powered blender (I love my Vitamix).
  2. Blend until smooth. Add in cacao nibs and blend a couple seconds more. Pour into a glass, sprinkle with granola and cacao nibs and enjoy!

Notes

Feel free to add your favorite superfood ingredients to the smoothie as well. I love adding this adaptogenic mushroom blend.
