Gabrielle from G Ceramics and CoHello My Dear Readers!

Today, on the 15 Day Smoothie Challenge, we have something a little more decadent, balanced with loads of antioxidant power. My sweet, talented friend, Gabrielle from G Ceramic & Co has shared one of her seasonal smoothies with us! Her cooking style is simple, luxurious and emphasizes the true beauty of food. You will find many delicious recipes and the most gorgeous hand made ceramics on her blog and website. Each dish served in her beautiful tableware carries a special and magical energy with it that makes the experience of eating more sensual and enjoyable.





Here is her creation for day 13 of the smoothie challenge:

This smoothie is your afternoon power snack that is inspired by the Java Chip Frappuccino. It’s best served cold, so add 4-5 ice cubes if you want it extra chilly.

Cacao~Chip Smoothie

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk or water
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 2 medjool dates
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts
  • 2-4 squares cup dark chocolate (less than 1/4 cup)

Add all ingredients except dark chocolate. Blend until smooth. Add chocolate and pulse just enough to break into small chunks.
