I don’t have kids, but if I did I’d sell them for food. I’ve got a nasty raw almond butter habit that will land me in jail one day. While I’m still free, let me tell you about the snack-sized smoothie we’ve been making around here that costs roughly a million dollars.
Please experience the fantasmo that is blueberries and chocolate. Not to be trifled with, this combo makes a healthy smoothie taste like a cheat-treat. (Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.) Throw in something sweet, something smooth and flax seeds (good for the ladies) and BLAMO, you just dropped a 20.
Most recipes have a star ingredient. I’m not sure who it is in this bunch, cuz they’re all divas. Is it the grapes? 15 make the perfect sweetness; anymore and it would overpower any less and the chocolate wouldn’t pop. The raw almond butter – $13 dollars/jar and really hard to open? It could be the coconut milk which I find to be the best smoothie liquid. Perhaps its the Superfood which surprisingly uses an excellent quality chocolate to make this new flavor. I don’t know, you decide! Don’t make me choose!
Start here: (recipe makes 2, snack-sized smoothies)
2T flax seeds
1 1/2 c frozen blueberries
1 c unsweetened coconut milk (or almond milk)
2T raw almond butter
1 1/2 scoops chocolate flavor Superfood powder
2 ice cubes
Blend the flax seeds in your blender until they look like this:
Add all other ingredients except cocoa powder and Superfood. Once the mixture is smooth, add the last 2 ingredients and mix a bit further. Pour into your favorite chalice and share with a friend.
