Hi I just purchase the 900 series and looking to get much healthier. I want to lose weight and lower my blood pressure, plus help my husband gain energy. Because there are a plethora of recipes, please suggest which one (s)I can start with for the both of us. Thank you.

The instructions say to use a tall cup but after combining all the ingredients it barely filled the small size. What did I do wrong?

I noticed the same thing lol. So I just added a little bit more.....the consistency is pretty good though, when I portioned it out the first run..... I assume it's 1/2 the tall cup, of spinach? Either way, I weigh out all my contents since I'm watching my calories.....and do about 1.5 cups (85 grams) of weighed spinach. 5 grams of unsweetened cocoa powder.....etc and yea, this tastes amazing, with about 1/2 a tablespoon (10-11 grams) of honey lol
I added some mint leaves, flax seeds, and a bit more cacao nibs, since I was craving something chocolatey. A couple ice cubes and it sure hit the spot for me!!!

can the hershey's cocoa powder we have for baking be used for this recipe it says 100% cacao on the can or do i have to buy some other type of cacao?
It will have some of the benefits, but since it has been processed and cooked, it will loose a lot of its nutrient value. Raw cacao powder is a better option because it is a more nutrient dense food and is higher in antioxidants.

Hello Sarah, Can you substitute Agave Nectar for the honey? Also which brand of Cocoa is recommended?
Can you add hemp seeds to increase the protein if you substitute in the banana for the yogurt?
I would like to use a dairy-free alternative to the Greek Yogurt, is soy okay? Is there a better alternative? Thank you :)

Didn't like this one, thought it would be more chocolate tasting. yogurt seemed to over power.

Greek yogurt can be very sour tasting. If you are craving a chocolatey tasting shake you can swap the yogurt for a banana. Your Blast will be much lower in protein and higher in carbs, but you can satisfy a sweet tooth this way without all the added refined sugar and crap that you find in most chocolate products.
