Raw Vegan Recipe: Exotic Chocolate Milk

Posted Jun 07 2009 11:04pm
It's time for a recipe! YAY! Here is a delicious, sassy, and unique recipe that is creamy and nutritious (ginger and hemp seeds rock!). This recipe is featured in my latest book, Kristen Suzanne's Ultimate Raw Vegan Chocolate Recipes. And, the lovely Ingrid (of Raw Epicurean) also featured this on herblogwith a picture.

EXOTIC CHOCOLATE MILK 

By Kristen Suzanne ofKristensRaw.com

Yield 3 cups

Ginger is a rich source of powerful antioxidants, which have anti-inflammatory properties, and there is evidence that ginger's antioxidants might help fight/inhibit the growth of certain types of cancers. Not only that, studies show ginger can also help boost the immune system. 

Hemp is commonly referred to as a "superfood" because of its amazing nutritional value. Its amino acid profile dominates with the 8 essential amino acids (10 if you're elderly or a baby), making it a vegetarian source of "complete" protein! And, it's loaded with essential fatty acids in an ideal ratio of omega 3s to omega 6s. Go hemp!

2 cups water

1 cup hemp seeds

1/4 cup raw chocolate powder

2 tablespoons raw agave nectar or date paste (or more)

1 1/2 teaspoons orange blossom water *

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger (or more)

pinch Himalayan crystal salt (optional)


Blend all of the ingredients until smooth and creamy.Exotic Chocolate Milkwill stay fresh when stored in an airtight container for up to five days.

* Available at most Middle Eastern Markets, online, and at some Whole Foods Markets.
