It's fresh and fruity, but tastes heavenly - chocolatey... Delish!
This delicious and nutritious vegan smoothie is an amazing way to start the day! It’s like starting the day with a mouthful of creamy (yet fruity and refreshing!) chocolate… Raw cacao fruit is packed with antioxidants and vitamins that will give that much needed energy throughout the day. It’s definitely a MUST to try at least once in your lifetime 😍
Cacao fruit smoothie is the perfect combination of semi-sweet, fruity flavors and SO creamy in texture. A touch of vanilla hints at dessert, and coconut milk makes it heavenly tropical, while cacao fruit is a unique base ingredient that adds a delightful note of fresh chocolate and a mild fruit aftertaste.
Fresh cacao pods are too beautiful to look at, with white flesh membranes hiding the cacao nibs inside!
For the Raw Cacao Fruit Smoothie (will make approximately 2 cups, depending on the size of your cocoa pod) you’ll need:
1 cup coconut milk (or other plant based substitute);
1 Cacao fruit from the whole pod;
1 tbsp of maple syrup;
1 pod of vanilla bean;
Blend everything in a powerful blender (my all times favourite tool is #Vitamix) to make it extra creamy!
P.S. These beautiful tablecloths you are seeing in these photos are made of 100% pure linen by the company LINEN TALES from my home Country Lithuania! They ship worldwide! 👉🏼 https://linentales.us
If you know me, you know I take food examination very seriously... 🩺 Therefore, dissection took place and, oh WHOA, look at those cacao nibs inside each membrane of the fruit!
I bought this fresh cacao pod from https://iheartfruitbox.com ❤️
