Decadent Raspberry Chocolate Smoothie

This smoothie tastes so decadent and dessert-like I just had to put it into a wine glass!

I needed a morning snack that was quick and something I could take on the go (and no I didn't take the wine glass in the car.. the smoothie got transferred into a plastic cup). What comes to mind? A smoothie of course! Although this one really tastes more like a milkshake, it contains only healthy ingredients and is not too thick so.... a smoothie it is.

What you'll need:
6-10 fresh raspberries
1/2 ripe banana (fresh or frozen is fine)
1/4 c vanilla hemp milk + water as needed for the right consistency
1 packet (or 2 tbsp) Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

Put all ingredients into blender and blend until thoroughly mixed. Feel free to add any extra fruit, I personally think mango would be delightful ;) The combination of hemp milk and nut butter adds a decent amount of protein but if you are looking for more of a protein shake you can add hemp protein powder but make sure to also add more liquid as well so it doesn't get too thick.

That's it, now go enjoy!
