makes one awesome smoothie!
3 dates, pitted
1 tablespoon raw tahini (or more)
3 tablespoon carob powder, or raw cocoa powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon (or more!)
1 cup ice + a bit of h20
3 tablespoon cacao nibs
Alright. Use a blender OR food processor.
First blend the dates, then add everything else. Food process till you are satisfied with the smoothness. Enjoy! okay, I admit, I have made this with coffee, chilled. And it is delicious. But if you are 100% raw foodie, coffee is not technically raw. Perhaps you would prefer a superfood, such as maca ;) also..maybe a frozen banana would be good in here, or some peanut butter. maybe you’d like almond milk instead of h20. Or add a little bit of coconut flakes.Some vanilla…?
(getting inspired yet? Or maybe just confused? The answer is: this is a flexible recipe. Most raw food recipes are. Just, mix in what you think would be good…substitute….have fun. You are your own gourmet chef, or, mad scientist, if you would prefer. It is difficult to mess up a smoothie. K. Off you go, to the kitchen!
