  • Homemade: Hot Chocolate Smoothie


    It's been rather chilly these past couple day which is ideal for a nice hot beverage; yet I'm craving this frosty Chocolate Chia Smoothie and cannot get over an insatiable thirst for a chocolate chia beverage, so I came up with a compromise. That is, to make a hot chocolate version of the smoothie. As it turns out, the consistency is rather similar to a traditional Mexican drink known as atole de champurrado!

    Ingredients:
    • 1 1/4 c unsweetened quinoa milk
    • 1 t pure vanilla extract
    • 2 T raw cacao powder
    • 1 T peanut butter
    • 1 T honey
    • 2 T chia 
    • 1 banana
    • 1/2 c kale

    Directions:
    Heat 1 cup  of milk over medium heat. Gently sir in the vanilla and cacao.
    Finely grind the chia seeds then stir in with the milk for a light creamy feel.
    Blend 1/4 cup of milk with peanut butter, honey, banana and kale until smooth.
    Pour the warm milk mixture with the smoothie blend and pulse for a frothy consistency.

    Sprinkle chia seeds to garnish, serve in a mug and enjoy!
