Kitchen’In: cocoa-date smoothie

December 18th, 2012

You know that feeling when something you have at a restaurant is so good it inspires you to DIY it at home? That’s exactly how this Cocoa-Date Smoothie came to be. Kristen gets all the credit for turning me onto it last summer while we grabbed a bite to eat at Aux Vivres. After ordering it on the go this past weekend and being re-acquainted with how tastyyyyy it is, I couldn’t resist putting the fresh Medjool dates I’d picked up last week to good use.

1 cup (Earth’s Own) almond milk
1/4 cup coconut milk
Handful fresh dates, pitted
1 Tsp Chia Seeds (Aux Vivres makes theirs with Flaxseed protein but I didn’t have any on hand #substitution)
1 Tsp cocoa

Toss all the ingredients into a blender– start with the liquids first. Add ice and blend until smooth.

    I’ve been going through containers upon containers of that brand of dates recently! They’re by far the best ones I’ve ever had. I eat them on their own, or in yogourt but I never thought to try them in a smoothie! Definitely on my breakfast list for the week :) Thanks for the post.
