This is by far my favorite summer smoothie! It was actually the first smoothie combo that I have ever made. It’s a fun green color and tastes super refreshing. The green color comes both from spinach and wheatgrass. I love wheatgrass! It is the first superfood that I ever tried. It has a grassy taste that isn’t too strong so its an easy add to any smoothie. Wheatgrass is high in nutrients and antioxidants and can help reduce inflammation. However, wheatgrass is the leaves of the wheat plant and can contain gluten depending on how it is harvested. It may be best to avoid wheatgrass if you are gluten-free.
Note: This recipe is labeled as vegan, but is topped with bee pollen (optional). If you are trying to follow a vegan diet, you may want to skip the bee pollen topping.

Cacao powder has a rich chocolaty taste but is full of minerals and can have antioxidant effects. It does taste bitter by itself so I like to balance it out with a frozen banana in my smoothies. And might I add, this smoothie bowl legit tastes like a chocolate milkshake 😋🍌🍫
