Superfood Smoothie

Leave a comment

If I could hook myself up to an IV of superfoods each day without piercing my skin, I would do it.  But the next best thing I believe, is smoothies.  They’re hugely “on trend” at the moment, and for good reason – it’s a very efficient way to boost your nutrient content each day.  It’s also a lot of fun to play around with various flavours.  I never seem to have exactly the same type twice, but for a quick afternoon snack that is dairy free and gluten free, I pulled together one of my favourite combinations and actually remembered to take note of the quantities I used so I could share it with you … I call it my chocolate thickshake.

Ingredients

50gms raw cashews (you can soak these overnight to reduce phytates if you’re organised!)
1 medjool date
1 tbsp raw cacao
100gms or 1 cup almond milk
1 heaped tsp maca powder
1 tsp vanilla
12 ice cubes

Method

Using a blender, Vitamix or Thermomix, mill the cashews with the medjool date until very fine – approximately 45 seconds.
Add remaining ingredients and blend at a high speed for up to 2 minutes to ensure a thick, smooth consistency.
Serve immediately.

With grace and gusto,
