Velvety and rich chocolate almond smoothie made with almond milk, dates, and almond separate for additional almond season! Normally vegetarian, sans dairy, and without gluten. On account of Silk for supporting the present post!
I from the start needed to make an Almond Joy smoothie however chocolate, almond, coconut was an excessive number of flavors in a homogeneous blend like a smoothie. In any event I suspected as much. It worked much better in my Almond, which you truly need to attempt in the event that you haven’t as of now.
So here I am with this chocolate almond smoothie.
You can presumably tell by the photos, yet I like my smoothies thick. Much the same as my chocolate avocado smoothie! Mine was somewhat more like pudding than a smoothie. The second time I made it, I utilized twofold the measure of almond milk (the upper sum called for in the formula) and that will get you your more slender consistency!
The drawback to smoothies with cocoa powder is that you need to include such a lot of sugar. I utilized dates yet on the off chance that you don’t have dates or would prefer not to utilize them, maple syrup is a heavenly choice!
I may have even added a little maple syrup to my date-improved adaptation for considerably more sweeteness. Large sweet tooth here!
This is the first occasion when I’ve added almond margarine to a smoothie. To be completely forthright, I don’t figure it did anything flavor-wise. Be that as it may, I’m continually attempting to get in more protein, so I left it in there. Don’t hesitate to preclude it!
The almond enhance from the almond milk and margarine is truly veiled behind all the cocoa powder so I added some almond concentrate to this smoothie. I additionally don’t think I’ve at any point utilized concentrate in a smoothie however hello… it works, so why not.
Silk has a few assortments of nut milk that are on the whole incredible in this smoothie. I utilized Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk however Unsweetened Almondmilk (without the vanilla) works similarly too.
Chocolate Almond Smoothie
1 enormous banana (mine was 130 grams without the strip)
2 tablespoons (32 grams) unsweetened almond margarine
1/4-1/2 cup (60-120 milliliters) Unsweetened Vanilla Almondmilk (or Unsweetened Almondmilk)
3 tablespoons (19 grams) cocoa powder (I utilized crude cacao powder)
6 pitted dates (50 grams) (If utilizing Medjool dates, you’ll need less than 6. Make a point to pass by weight)
spot of salt (this enables the flavors to pop)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla concentrate
1/4 teaspoon almond extricate
maple syrup, discretionary (the amount you need will rely upon how sweet your bananas are, what sort of cocoa powder you use and the amount of a sweet tooth you have)
Mix everything (beginning with 1/4 cup almond milk), aside from the maple syrup, together in a blender. Include more milk, whenever wanted. If not sweet enough, include some maple syrup or another sugar to taste.
I finished mine off with toasted coconut chips, cut almonds and smaller than usual chocolate chips.
