WHO NEEDS CHOCOLATE PUDDING


This post is dedicated to my good friend who said and I quote...

“I was like …. I haven't seen a damn smoothie post in forever.  What is going on with Her”

He is referring to my instagram page. Since I consume a smoothie a day, I am often inclined to share the recipe and photo of me holding it in a clear glass jar with a gold lid, usually on a sunny day in the grass somewhere. 

Having a smoothie a day has been a part of my regimen for over a year now.  The reason I haven’t posted a pic of a “one-a-day” smoothie in a minute is because I’ve been excitedly preoccupied with starting up GBinstyle.com and designing new apparel for GwenBeloti.com.  

So s/o to my friend, this is the first of many smoothie posts I’ll share here on GBinStyle.

THE SMOOTHIE!!!! I categorize them into two main categories juicy vs creamy.

How I define creamy, it usually has a non dairy milk as the liquid base and some nut butter in it.  The texture is typically thick enough that you’d “eat” it with a spoon versus a straw.

but TIP..... I’ve since been able to achieve a creamy textured smoothie using water as the liquid base instead of a non dairy milk of sorts. So those not into milk or nut butters you can still get a thick smoothie using water.  Will share one of those recipes in another post.

My fave creamy smoothie is reminiscent of chocolate pudding or ice cream.

Here is the recipe:
Beets (pre-cooked and packaged) - ⅓ cup
Cacao (raw chocolate) - 2 tsps  
Almond Milk - ½ cup
Bananas (organic- I use bananas that I’ve frozen myself) - ½ of a medium
Wild Blueberries (usually frozen) - ⅓ cup
Almond butter - 2 tsps
Date Lady Syrup (so darn yummy)- 2 tsps
Kale or Mixed Greens - ¾ cup
Chia seeds (makes it thick and jeallatin like) - 1 tsp  
*Avocado - ¼ of a medium
*Optional

Blend it all up and there you have it!

Great for a breakfast meal replacement, or a hearty snack.  Think pudding or ice cream... but what you really have is fruits, veggies, and superfoods. #yumm

Maybe give it a try!
