Chocolate-Hazelnut Smoothie (Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free)Tilth : Creating Fertile Ground for Good Health : tilthforhealth.com
A quick one today: This smoothie is sorta like a much healthier, banana-tinged version of a Nutella milkshake, especially if you use the coconut milk (plus some water). Delicious, right?
1 small organic banana, sliced
1/2-1 cup unsweetened milk alternative (hemp works well; hazelnut runs with the theme; coconut milk + water will make it like a killer-rich milkshake)
4 dates, pitted (or more to make it sweeter)
2 tablespoons natural hazelnut butter
1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
5 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a powerful blender. Puree until smooth. Enjoy.
