FRESH FRUIT COCOA SMOOTHIE
Strawberry, blueberry and banana blended with walnut and flax seed in almond-coconut milk with dark cocoa and ginger juice! This is about the speed of my power drinks!
Makes 3 cups
1 c. Almond Breeze Almond and Coconut Milk Blend by Blue Diamond
1 c. fresh strawberries
1/2 c. fresh blueberries
1 sm. banana
2 T. walnut crumbles
3 T. light brown sugar
1 T. unsweetened dark cocoa powder
2 t. fresh ginger juice
2 t. finely ground flax seed
3-4 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in blender container and blend till smooth.
Notes: When I make a smoothie I don’t drink a pint of it. Six ounces – a juice glass – does it for me.
Make ginger juice by processing fresh ginger root in juicer. Or, freeze whole, then when ready to use thaw, slice a slit in the side of it and squeeze out the juice.
Always use very fresh ginger for both processes – otherwise you won’t get any juice.
