Raw Chocolate Smoothie

Raw Chocolate Smoothie

Our supply of raw milk is back and we are stupidly excited about it. We lost it over a year ago when our local food shop closed. We can now buy it again at our local pannier market. This means I am now able to make raw food smoothies, which feels like a nice healthy start to the day. I add various ingredients to a basic mix, but this one involves a raw chocolate and almond spread. It makes for a nice breakfast treat and a change from our normal toast.

I’m entering this into Javelin Warrior’s Made with Love Mondays – it may not have taken long to make, but it was certainly made with love.

    I love the sound of this. I have some raw chocolate and hazelnut spread (it’s like healthy nutella!) So I might give this a try 🙂

    750 centilitres is 7.5 litres. I think you mean millilitres.

      Thanks Jac, smoothies have become a regular breakfast now, which is funny as we didn’t used to have them at all.

    I’ve never heard of raw chocolate and almond spread, but I’m intrigued because it sounds like a tasty pairing. And combined in a smoothie like this with banana sounds perfect for a quick breakfast…

    We are emphatically not milk drinkers in this house, but I am all for smoothies! And yes, I want to know more about this raw choc and nut spread, having re-ignited a serious passion for Nutella while on holiday.
