How To Make
  1. Blend all ingredients on high and for long enough to get a silky texture. If using bee pollen, do not blend it but sprinkle it on top of the smoothie (otherwise it will become bitter).

AIP: Replace hazelnuts and hemp seeds with ½ avocado. Replace cacao powder with carob powder. If eating as a breakfast, add a side of breakfast sausage or leftover meat for extra protein.

Low-FODMAP: Replace date with ¼ banana, 2 tsp maple syrup or stevia.

Low-Histamine: Replace cacao powder with carob powder. Replace date with ½ cup blueberries and/or blackberries, stevia or 2 tsp maple syrup.
