Dark & dreamy chocolate smoothie

ice-cold slushy-style chocolate drink

From issue 66.

Get your chocolate fix with this lusciously thick smoothie using quality cacao powder.

On a warm day, there’s nothing like an ice-cold slushy-style chocolate drink. To make it super chocolatey, I sometimes add a bit of extra high-quality cacao powder. Just use the amount to suit your tastebuds. If you don’t have flaxseed oil at hand, then this is still delicious without it. I love adding this ingredient, though, because it has omega-3 fatty acids. There are no preservatives in this cup. Just good stuff.

Chocolate Honey Frappe Serves 1

  • 1 tsp mānuka honey
  • 1 large frozen banana, skin removed
  • pinch vanilla bean powder
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup dark 
  • cacao powder
  • 1½ cups ice
  • 1 tsp flaxseed oil
  • pinch salt

Put all ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth. Then pour the thick mixture into a glass. I topped this one with bee pollen because I had it in my cupboard. But it’s absolutely fine without any topping (and cheaper, of course!). You can use a glass straw to slurp up the drink or eat it using a spoon.
