Dark Magic Smoothie | The Dragon Prince

       The Dragon Prince animated series premiered on Netflix on September 4th (2018) and it is so good! It's an epic fantasy with action, adventure, family drama, politics, magic, humor, a huge quest, and food!

       One of the stand out foods of the show are the jelly tarts which I made prior to the premier back in September (gotta make 'em again now that I know they are made with persimmon jelly!), but peanut butter is also mentioned through the first season. We learn that Claudia, dark magic user and daughter to the king's advisor, likes peanut butter (loves it maybe? She likes to share her PB breath with others), and later on, the main character that has a crush on her is obviously having a lovey-lovey dream with her in it and says he was dreaming about peanut butter sandwiches when he's caught. So I thought it would be fun to combine Claudia's dark magic and love of peanut butter in an easy recipe!

Claudia's Dark Magic Smoothie

1 Handful (~1 C) Fresh Spinach (I like to remove any long stems)
1 Cup Frozen Blueberries + extra for garnish
2-3 Tbsp. Agave Syrup
2 tsp. - 1 Tbsp. Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder (I used Hershey's Special Dark)
1/2 Banana (optional)
1 C Non-Dairy Milk (I used Almond Milk)
Peanut Butter Whip
1 1/2 C Cool Whip
1/4-1/2 C Creamy Peanut Butter

Put the spinach & blueberries into the blender. Depending on how sweet & how chocolatey you want the smoothie, add in 2-3 Tbsp. of agave syrup & 2 tsp. up to 1 Tbsp. of cocoa powder. Add in 1/2 banana if you'd like (optional).
Pour in the non-dairy milk & blend until well combined, adding 1/4 to 1/2 cup more milk if needed.
If the color needs adjusting, blend in a few more spinach leaves or blueberries.
You can optionally add in flavorings like a sprinkling of cinnamon or anise extract, etc.
Pour the smoothie into a large tumbler set on a plate (to catch any over flow once the whip is put on).

Peanut Butter Whip:
In a medium bowl stir together the Cool Whip & 1/4 Cup peanut butter until completely combined. If you'd like it more peanut butter-y go ahead & add in another 1/4 cup to make it a full 1/2 cup.
Spoon the mixture into a sandwich baggie & snip a nickel-sized hole from one corner.
Pipe a big swirl of whip on top of the smoothie.

Garnish with whole frozen blueberries.
You could also add a fresh mint leaf &/or dark chocolate shavings.
