I woke up this fine April fool’s morning wanting chocolate. Conveniently, I used up my kale reserves in dinner last night, so no leafy greens for a smoothie. Which made me think, why not make a dessert-worthy smoothie and eat “chocolate ice cream” (or as close to it as I can make it) to celebrate the day? And guys, this was amazing. If you have a sweet tooth, this is for you! It’s light, fluffy, creamy, nutritious, and sweet-but-not-too-sweet. I am so tempted to just go back in the kitchen and make round 2!!
Chocolate “Ice Cream” Smoothie (V, P, GF)
Serves 1 lighter serving
1 frozen banana
2 Tbsp cacao
2 tbsp hemp seeds (optional, but kicks up the protein!)
Almond Milk as needed (no more than 1/4 to 1/3 cup)
Add all ingredients to the blender, adding just enough almond milk to make it blend easily, but making sure to keep the thick consistency.
