chocolate sunbutter green smoothie


You rule. It’s all going to be okay. Get shit done. Fist pump!

I hope you all started your day off with a positive mantra. Not only did Taylor and I chant our new mantra pretty hard this morning but we also enjoyed this AMAZING smoothie. We have a big day ahead of us and this puppy is the best way to kick off a long day. Besides if you haven’t tried sunflower butter yet this is your chance to try my new favorite spread!!! It’s really healthy and tastes delicious.


Now with our bellies full we are headed up to Tumbleweed to finish building our big greenhouse and weed our garlic patch.


And as always, when our backs begin to give out in the fields we will take a moment to look up at this view and somehow all will be well again.

  1. This looks deeeelicious. I have been wanting to try sunbutter and you’re right, this is the perfect excuse! I’m starving right now and wishing I were slurping this at my desk.

  2. Anytime I have an excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast, I’ll take it! I have a jar of sunbutter in my fridge – I must have purchased it knowing that you were going to post a use for it πŸ˜‰

    I just bought some cocoa powder, so I’ll be sure to add some to my next batch of smoothies. That’s the way to start the day!

    If you can, I’d love to see some photos of the finished greenhouse. So cool.

    I love sunflower butter, it is soooo good. This smoothie sounds awesome, can you bring me one? You’re only like 9 or 10 hours away or something, no biggie. I need to chant your mantra to myself more often…oh and fist pump too. I think that will help. πŸ™‚
