This delicious green smoothie is packed with fiber and flavor.  It is also chockfull of the mineral, magnesium, from 3 sources: the banana, raw cacao nibs and raw greens.  I favor using wild arugula in this smoothie, which gives this smoothie a unique but flavorful slightly bitter edge. I usually don’t add a Medjool date, but if you need a little more sweet to temper the greens, go for it!
