CHOCOLATE & VANILLA SMOOTHIE BOWL Clean Supper Club
Occasionally the Smoothie gurus at NUTRiBULLET ask us to create a special blend for them. We love this mix so much that we eat it for breakfast or as a dessert.
These ingredients make 4 small smoothie bowls
This is quite a thick mix; you may need to add more nut milk for it to blend.
1 cup of oats 1 Frozen banana 1/3rd cup of pre soaked chia seeds 1 tsp. of raw vanilla powder or vanilla extract 1 tsp. of Lucuma powder 130 ml of unsweetenend almond milk
Chocolate, Fig & Spinach Smoothie 1 Fig 1 large handful of spinach ½ cup of pre soaked cashews, soak for min of 2 hours in cold water, ideally over night. 1/3 cup of raw cacao powder 200ml unsweetened almond milk
Caramel Dollop 6 large dates (we used medjool) 1 tbsp. of almond butter 3 tbsp. of water 1 tbsp. of maple syrup 1 tsp. of Lucuma powder
Toppings Strawberries Blueberries Cacao nibs Fig
Chocolate drizzle 80g of 90% dark chocolate gently melt in pan with 1 tsp. of coconut oil
Method 1. Make sure you blitz all the Smoothie mixes until they are smooth!
2. Spoon half of the chocolate & vanilla mixes to either side of the bowls, we like to swirl the mix slightly (we like pretty food). Then pile on the fruit, add a glorious caramel dollop; scatter the cacao nibs and drizzle with liquid chocolate.
3. Grab a spoon and delve in.
