Raw Chocolate Smoothie for a Power Breakfast
Start the day as you mean to go on. That’s how I kid myself when I have this raw chocolate smoothie for breakfast anyhow. It’s delicious, healthy and a breeze to make. Perfect for breakfast or a post workout boost.
Raw Chocolate Smoothie for Breakfast
Our supply of raw milk is back and we are stupidly excited about it. We lost it over a year ago when our Cornish food shop closed. We can now buy it again at our local pannier market. This means I am at last able to make raw food smoothies. These feel like a nice healthy start to the day. If you’re vegan or not drinking dairy for whatever reason, you can easily substitute the raw milk for a non-dairy milk of your choice. Almond milk would probably be my preferred one for this raw chocolate smoothie.
I add various ingredients to a basic mix, but this one involves an organic raw chocolate and almond spread. This may not be the easiest thing to get hold of, so in the recipe I’ve suggested using raw almond butter instead along with cocoa nibs or raw cacao powder.
I’m not too keen on sweet stuff for breakfast, preferring to keep that for later in the day. I find the banana in this raw chocolate smoothie makes it plenty sweet enough for me. CT agrees. But please do add an additional sweetener such as maple syrup, agave nectar or raw honey if you feel the need.
This raw chocolate smoothie makes for a nice breakfast treat and a change from our normal toast. It’s silky smooth, but it won’t bite back, quipped CT as he drank his smoothie from a Cobra glass.
