1 cup fresh organic spinach
1/4 organic avocado
1 teaspoon Pyure Sweetener
2 tablespoons cocoa nibs

2. Put on a Smoothie setting or on high until completely puréed.
3. Pour smoothie into a tall metal, glass or ceramic mug.
4. Add 2 to 4 drops of peppermint oil and stir before drinking. (If blender uses a plastic container) Enjoy!
