We love smoothies, especially for breakfast, as they are a great way of getting loads of good stuff in easily, without having to do too much chewing.
This quick and easy recipe is a great starting point, but you can easily adapt it to your preferences or to what you have in the cupboard. The following will make 2 good sized glasses, so you can adjust if it's just one of you, or keep it in the fridge for later in the day.
Stick all the ingredients in a blender and fire it up until smooth. Simple as that!
You can adjust how fluid your smoothie is by adding more or less hemp milk.
We like a bit of bite to our smoothies, so use the raw cacao nibs as they are, but if you prefer the easy life, then we sell a handy raw cacao nib grinder. Alternatively you could use raw cacao powder.
Fresh berries are best and with summer coming we'll soon be out collecting loads and freezing them. But if you don't have fresh you can usually buy bags of frozen berries, which also make your smoothie nicely chilled.
This particular recipe is loaded with goodness and a great start to your day.
If so, drop us a line with details and we'll publish the best on our website and in our Raw Chocolate News.
Preparing your cacao elixir for a cacao ceremony is easy, though will benefit from allowing more time to make it sacred!
