Ingredients

  • 250 ml tinned coconut milk (including the cream from the top)
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder (or dark cocoa powder)
  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 4 whole ice cubes
  • 2 tsp xylitol or erythritol sweetener (optional)

Instructions

  • Add cacao powder, peanut butter, ice cubes and tinned coconut milk to a blender (ensuring to use the cream from the top of the coconut milk tin. This is the BEST bit, so make sure you get it!)
  • Blitz the ingredients until they are smooth and then try the smoothie. Depending on your taste, this may be sweet enough. If it is not sweet enough add your sweetener of choice 1 teaspoon at a time, blitzing in between each spoonful until you reach the desired sweetness

Notes

I advise having this as a snack instead of just drinking it alongside food due to the carbs in the chocolate.ย 
You could also add double cream and/or nuts/seeds to this. Another option is to a coffee, to change this into a thick mocha shake! I added whipped cream and half a square of dark chocolate for decoration.
