An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
If you’ve not checked out the Muffin Myth Blog, yet, you should.
Katie Trant posted a recipe for a Black Bean smoothie, which she created to add planted-based protein to her diet.
I was intrigued, but I have to admit, skeptical it would be potable!
I tweaked her recipe a bit and created my own version of this tasty treat.
1 frozen banana (works much better if you peel it before you freeze it)
1 cup almond milk
1/2 can of organic black beans
4 prunes or pitted dates (can substitute 1-2 Tbsp maple syrup or honey as well)
2 Tbsp of cocoa powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp chia seeds (optional)
and I like to throw some spinach leaves in there, because I love my greens, so consider doing the same.
This little treat is seriously delicious!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did—try the original Chocolate Black Bean Brownie Smoothie version too!
