Macadamia Milk Chocolate Smoothie


August 25, 2009

This vegan dairy free macadamia chocolate smoothie is rich, creamy, and decadent. This is dessert in a glass.

Homemade macadamia milk is rich, creamy, decadent, and seriously delicious. Macadamias and chocolate were just meant to live in the blender together, and in this smoothie, they’re dynamite. Chocoholics, beware, this is hard to quit drinking.

For those of you who don’t want to make your own milk, check out the new Suncoast Gold Mac Milk in original and unsweetened varieties in stores now! It’s the best commercial milk I’ve ever tasted in my life.

If you want this shake colder, add in some ice cubes; if you want it richer, add more cacao; and for sweeter ride add another date. For me, this shake is sweet enough. but my sister (fellow chocoholic) makes it richer and sweeter. Either way, this smoothie rocks, and I don’t mind sayin!

*Probiotic Powder – I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

*Celtic Sea Salt – I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
