RICH, CREAMY CHOCOLATE BEETROOT SMOOTHIE

danielle copperman

This is not what it sounds like. In many ways, it is, but in a lot of ways, it isn't. This is not a recipe for vegetable fondu, if that's the image that the title has painted in your mind. I apologise if you got excited and are now feeling a little let down. It's just a cacao smoothie, rich in vegetables, superfoods and unbelievable flavour sensations. But trust me, its good. I broke my wrist this weekend (its ok, I'm over it) which means I can't cook much, and even if I manage to, I can't wash anything up. Its a road to nowhere. I'll end up living in a pile of festering nut milk bags, ashamed, having to witness my vitamix sitting in it's own filth in the sink.

Anyway, since I only have one hand to type this, and have a lot to do today, i'm going to make it brief. I have so many amazing summer recipes i'm struggling to find the time to upload, but in the meantime, here's what I had for breakfast (don't worry, I have a friend coming over tonight - she can give my vitamix the TLC it deserves).

INGREDIENTS

1 Handful Raw Spinach
100G Raw Beetroot, grated
1-2 Medjool Dates (use more if you have a sweet tooth, less if you are strict about fructose - you can substitute for agave, coconut nectar, wildflower, manuka or raw honey, or use nothing at all)
2-3 Tablespoons Cacao Powder (the more you use, the richer and more bitter the flavour, so control it to suit your tastebuds)
1/2 Tablespoon Maca Powder
1 Cup Plant Milk (almond/coconut/rice/oat)
4 Ice Cubes

OPTIONAL
1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
1/4 Banana
1 Raw Organic Egg

METHOD

It's not much of a recipe this one. Chuck everything into your blender and blend on the highest speed for 2 minutes, until smooth. Serve straight up, over more ice or store in an airtight container and serve chilled.

+ Enjoy as a drink
+ Dilute with more plant milk to make a delicious milk for granola / qnola / muesli etc
+ Add chia seeds to create a delicious chia seed pudding for breakfast or for snacking
