Black beans work surprisingly well in this recipe to add a creamy texture and an extra boost of fiber and protein for an energizing, blood sugar balancing smoothie! Vegan.



  • 1 cup preferred milk ( I like oat milk for this!)
  • ½ cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • 3 tbsp fresh mint
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs *optional


  1. Place all ingredients except cacao nibs in the blender. Blend until smooth (30-60 seconds)
  2. add the cacao nibs and give a quick blitz or stir in with a spoon or straw if you want more of a crunch!
  3. Enjoy!


  • Add more milk if you’re finding it too thick
  • If you prep this ahead of time it thickens overnight and will definitely need to be re-blended with more liquid
  • Decrease the liquid or let sit overnight to make this into a pudding!
  • Milk: any milk with work. Regular, plant based, choose what works for you!
  • Cacao Nibs: If you don’t have, feel free to add a sprinkle of chocolate chips!
  • Mint: If you don’t have fresh mint, a splash of mint extract will work
