Do not be alarmed by the picture below. Yes, it looks like puke in a mason jar and I could not find a coloured straw to make it look any better. But do not judge a book by it’s questionable puke-y cover…. this is a delicious treat! It satisfies the sweet tooth and keeps you full and full of energy!
This strange mystery smoothie is actually a chocolate frosty. What!?
Yes, it is my version of the healthiest chocolate frosty you may ever come across. If you find something better, comment with the link so I can make it, drink it and love my life even more. I’ll even post a thank you and admit it is better than mine. If it looks better, that’s a bonus too!
What I used (serves 1)
- 3 – 4 small frozen very ripe bananas
- 1/2 cup cartoned unsweetened coconut milk (any unsweetened nut milk should do)
- generous handful of spinach
- 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds (optional)
In a blender, pour coconut milk and blend in the spinach. Blend until smooth. One by one add the frozen (chopped) bananas and blend patiently (if you have a blender like mine, you’ll need patience) on the puree setting (if you have). If you find you need more milk, by all means add more.
Once smooth, add cacao powder and blend again. If you enjoy any additional spices like cinnamon, i’m sure that’ll be great too!
Okay.. so it doesn’t look like a chocolate frosty with pretty sprinkles on top.. and it actually looks exactly like what most junk food lovers would think a healthy frosty would look like… but the taste says “Oh nay nay, I am delicious.”
It’s obviously the spinach that makes it look all frightening but the best part is, if you’re not a spinach person, you can’t even taste it. And guess what, you really don’t even need the spinach if you don’t like it.
My favourite part about this recipe is that the ingredients are so minimal. Keeping it simple is the best way to achieve optimal health. If you try it, tell me what you think!
