A caffeine free alternative to Chocolate??
Meet my Carob smoothie! It tastes amazing, its light in taste yet dense in body making it very much a light meal! Combination of all the ingredients make this smoothie rich in antioxidants, natural phyto-nutrients, gluten free, vegan, high fibre, anti-allergenics and simply tasting just like a chocolate thick shake that hit the spot for both my cravings.
Ingredients: 1 pear, 4 small pitted dates, 1 whole banana, half cup soy milk, quarter cup (left over) almond milk, a piece of raw turmeric (my daily dose), sprinkle in flax seeds, chia seeds and 3 small teaspoon scoops of Carob powder. Add some ice if you like and perhaps a little bit of dessicated coconut for garnish.
As I said the drink is a meal! Its quite filling and at the same time filled with proteins and minerals and natural glucose and fats. Once you have tried it – leave a comment. Let me know what you thought. 🙂
