Raw Chocolate Smoothie

Healthy Raw Chocolate Smoothie

I don't believe in drinking your calories, but sometimes a girl like me needs something rich, sweet and frothy. This raw chocolate smoothie always fits the bill. If you want to get real ambitious you can make fresh Brazil nut milk instead of the boxed almond milk. Nut milk isn't hard to make and once you try it,  you will never want to go back to manufactured boxed non-dairy milk. You do not need to soak Brazil nuts, as they do not contain any enzyme inhibitors.

Brazil Nut Milk
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 6
  • 2½ cups Brazil nuts
  • 6 cups of filtered water
  1. Add your nuts to a food processor or blender. Add 6 cups of filtered or spring water and a pinch of salt. Blend on high until the nuts are completely broken down.
  2. Pour your milk through a nut milk bag and squeeze as much of the moisture out as possible. If you like a sweeter milk, add a few more dates or maple syrup.

  1. A good place to get started on your clean eating journey is to start putting more water into your body. We often underestimate the benefits of drinking water and even go as far as considering other liquids to be equivalent to drinking water. This myth needs to be put to rest! All liquids are not water and they cannot be used by your body the same way water can be. Juice contains sugars, coffee contains caffeine, milk contains fats and proteins, and the list goes one. All these need to be assimilated by your body differently than plain water does. Keep in mind that the body is mostly composed of water.
