Chocolate Nut Butter Smoothie: Easy Affordable Raw Recipe

Chocolate Nut Butter Smoothie 

Chocolate and nut butter? That's win win, in my book :)

No, really. I mean it. In my book. This recipe is a favorite from my book, Easy Affordable Raw: How to Go Raw on $10 a Day.

This smoothie reminds me of a frosty peanut butter cup. It’s rich and decadent and made to be poured in two or more layers.

For the Chocolate Layer
  • 2 bananas, sliced and frozen 
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder 
  • 1 cup (235 ml) almond milk or flax milk

For the Nut Butter Layer
  • 2 bananas 
  • 1/4 cup (65 g) almond butter 
  • 1 cup (235 ml) almond milk or flax milk

  • Chopped almonds, for garnish (optional) 
  • Cacao nibs, for garnish (optional)

To make the chocolate layer: In a blender, process all the chocolate layer ingredients until very smooth. Pour half into another container and set aside. Divide the remaining smoothie mixture between two glasses.

To make the nut butter layer: Blend the nut butter layer ingredients until very smooth, and divide between the glasses. Spoon this on top of the chocolate layer, being careful not to blend the two layers too much. Then, gently add the remaining chocolate layer mixture.

This is beautiful when made in three layers, but is just as delicious if made in two.

Top with chopped almonds and/or cacao nibs, if using.

Yield: about 4 cups
