Green Chocolate Chip Recovery Shake

Don’t let the color of this smoothie turn you away. Not only does this drink taste like a chocolate chip shake, it will leave you feeling refueled and recharged thanks to the serving of Vega Performance Protein and leafy greens. You’ll also get a real boost of nutrients from the addition of cacao nibs. Cacao is one of the best dietary sources of magnesium, high in fiber, and rich in antioxidants – how about that from chocolate!


  • 1 serving Vanilla Vega Sport® Performance Protein
  • 1 Tbsp cashew butter
  • 3 generous handfuls baby spinach
  • Unsweetened almond milk to desired consistency
  • 2 Tbsp cacao nibs


  1. Add all ingredients to blender.

  2. Blend until smooth.

  3. Enjoy!


    Add a handful of mint leaves to make your shake mint chocolate chip!
