brownie batter smoothie

Aptly named, this brownie batter smoothie tastes just like the real thing and is incredibly simple to prepare. You can even dip a spatula in it to induce nostalgia if you would like. As an added perk, the foods + flavors in this smoothie are so functional that you can be assured you are nourishing yourself to the fullest while also indulging in a decadent drink.


While cacao powder and cocoa powder come from the same plant, cocoa powder is more processed. To prioritize high-quality fat and lots of minerals + polyphenols, opt for cacao powder when possible!

F U N C T I O N A L F L A V O R S

  1. green-tipped banana: during ripening, the resistant starch in bananas gets converted to sugar. Opt for slightly underripe green-tipped bananas to regulate blood sugar + promote the health of the microbiome.

  2. avocado: not only are avocados incredibly versatile, they pack a punch of monounsaturated fats + fiber [hello gut health!] and contain several different carotenoids - a group of phytonutrients which promote eye + cognitive health

  3. cacao powder: while cacao powder and cocoa powder come from the same plant, cocoa powder is more processed. To prioritize high-quality fat and lots of minerals + polyphenols, opt for cacao powder when possible!

  4. cauliflower rice: sulforaphane, a compound found in cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, is a powerful nutrient that aids in detoxification + excretion of metabolites in the body [including metabolized hormones] to aid in cancer prevention + hormone balance
