Created by Stacy Stowers: Every morning I start my family off with the ?Happy Shake?. I developed this recipe and technique because I was not happy with the typical green smoothie that tasted like lawn clippings to me. I wanted a chocolate soft serve ice cream and this is what I created! Meet the ?Happy Shake?.

Recipe Ingredients for Happy Shake

4 cup Spinach
1 large Egg, Whole
1 tbsp Cacao Powder
1 cup, unthawed Blueberries

Recipe Directions for Happy Shake

  1. Liquid Base. Melody starts with 1/2 cup water.

  2. 4 cups of loosely packed spinach.....save the kale for a nice kale salad.

  3. A Good FAT. You need the good fat for metabolizing the spinach and keeping you satisfied for hours. You may choose from 1 Tbs. coconut oil, 1 Tbs. hemp seed or 1 raw egg. (you may want to start with a bit less water if using an egg

  4. THE HAPPY PART........1 Tbs. Maca for stamina, endurance and mental clarity.

  5. 1 Tbs. Raw Cacao for that HAPPY BLISS feeling.

  6. ~ with Melody Miles.

  7. A great option for some additional alkalizing GREENS.....add 1 Tbs. Vitamineral Green.....get from my super friend Linda Wooliever at

  9. DO NOT add fruit yet...... Blend all ingredients into your "green sludge".

  10. Now add 2 cups frozen fruit (1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries & 1/2 cup frozen banana pictured here) to your "green sludge".

  11. BLUEberries+GREEN "sludge" = Chocolate BROWN!
