Ingredients

 1 cup plant-based milk
 2 tbsp cacao powder (or cocoa powder. sugar-free, fairtrade)
 2 tbsp hemp seeds
 4 dates (pitted)
 1 medium banana (frozen)
 2 tbsp organic peanut butter (salt- and sugar-free)
 ½ cup broccoli sprouts (rinsed well)
 1 tsp vanilla extract (preferably alcohol-free)
 1 handful ice (optional)

Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend until creamy!

Chef's Notes

Substitutions
Alfalfa, broccoli, clover, or mustard would all work well in place of broccoli sprouts.

Peanut allergy?
Use sunflower butter in place of peanut butter or go without it! The banana, date, and cacao powder by themselves with the sprouts are a great combination.
