Recipe: Chocolate Strawberry Basil Smoothie

Posted Mar 19 2013 6:48am

vegan smoothie

Chocolate chocolate chocolate. Normally I have a salt tooth and go for the olives and smoked fish, but once in a while I crave chocolate!

I know. Basil in a sweet smoothie?  It works – there’s a hint of the herb in the background that makes this smoothie a bit more interesting than the ordinary.  I’ve gotten into this recipe lately for a post workout protein smoothie.  And it happens to taste like chocolate strawberry ice cream – no complaints here!


3 tablespoons cacao powder
1 tablespoon hemp powder
1 tablespoon raw honey (vegans can substitute a handful of pitted dried dates)
1 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
1 cup baby greens (I used baby swiss chard)
1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
5 large basil leaves

Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.  Taste with a spoon and add more raw honey if desired.

Serves 2
