Smoothie in winter? You betcha! Just chill on the frozen fruit, alright? And remember to…
About time I posted something sweet!
I took the best of both recipes to make it as affordable and low waste as possible. Thrifty-as bro!
1 tin chickpeas + brine
1 cup almond meal
3/4 cup buckwheat or quinoa or oat flour
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup coconut or raw sugar
1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
1 cup frozen berries – raspberries (first choice), boysenberries, or blueberries
~80g chopped dark chocolate such as Whittakers Dark Ghana; or Trade Aid Dark Chocolate Drops
Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
Place chickpeas in sieve, allowing brine to drain into a blender.
Add chickpeas to food processor and blitz until fine.
Add almond meal, other GF flour, cacao powder, vanilla, baking powder to food processor and pulse to roughly combine.
Blend chickpea brine on high in blender until foamy.
Add sugar and honey/maple syrup. Blend again.
Add this liquid to the food processor and process until a smooth batter is achieved.
Pour into baking paper lined dish and top with berries and choc chunks.
Bake for at least 20mins, no more than 25mins. Cool, cut and enjoy!
Holla at your girl if you end up making it, better still, tag me in your socials.
Always a pleasure,
