Yields: 1 serving

• 1/4 small/medium sized avocado

• 1 tablespoon cacao nibs or chocolate chips
1. Place banana, milk, spinach, avocado, mint, protein powder, and ice in a blender. Process until smooth. Add cacao nibs and stir or briefly pulse (don't completely puree the chocolate otherwise the color of the smoothie will turn brown). Serve immediately. Vary cacao and mint leaves to taste.
