Because Chocolate Makes Everything Better


This chocolate smoothie recipe that I’m sharing from Food52 is one that has been a staple of mine for years.  It’s simple, nutrient dense and tastes amazing.  This smoothie takes me from breakfast through to lunch, makes a great snack or hits the spot when I’ve got a chocolate craving.

My version (see below) makes one large serving or two small servings.  I also love to throw a couple tablespoon of hemp seeds into a smoothie like this to increase the healthy fat, fiber and protein content.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!



1 frozen banana

1/2-1tbsp raw cacao powder (use less or more depending on how chocolatey you want it)

2 pitted medjool dates

1 tbsp almond butter

2 tbsp hemp seeds

1-2 cups almond milk (use less or more depending on how thick you want it)

Blend together & serve. 😉
