Do you feel the august heat? Treat yourself to a delicious chocolate smoothie recipe. A fabulous and healthy summer drink. (Vegan and raw.)
I just love chocolate. And knowing that you can make a scrumptious vegan raw food smoothie that is actually good for you, just makes me soooo happy. Life is good!
1 tablespoon hemp seed
1 bag of frozen blueberries (about 250 gram or 1 cup)
1/2 teaspoon of liquid stevia
2 teaspoons of raw chocolate (powder or nibs)
1 teaspoon raw carob powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of green powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of mesquite (optional)
1 teaspoon of lucuma (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
Put all ingredients in a high speed blender. Add enough pure water so that all ingredients are covered. Blend well.
You may want to add a little more water if the smoothie gets too thick. You may blend longer if you find the smoothie too cold.
Instead of hemp seeds you can also use cashew nuts or coconut meat.
You don't have to use blueberries, but I really like the taste of them in combination with the chocolate.
I always add a bunch of or super foods to this smoothie for mineralization and extra nutrition. Don't be scared by the number. I just use whatever super foods I have available at home. Sometimes all of them, sometimes none. The ones listed above just go really well with the chocolate.
If you'd like a stronger chocolate taste, you can add some more chocolate powder of course. I then recommend to add a little raw honey or maple syrup for taste to this chocolate smoothie recipe. (Together with the stevia which you use to sweeten it).
