You can’t go wrong with chocolate and orange, so we thought we’d make a smoothie using zingy oranges with dairy free chocolate mylk, a handful of cashews and a couple of sweet carrots – and wholeheartedly suggest you do it too.
TIP - A nice long soak: If you have time, soak the cashews overnight in a bowl of cold water, then drain them and add them to your smoothie following the recipe. Soaking them makes them easier to blend and may make them easier to digest.
I was a bit unsure about this recipe before I tried it, I mean CARROTS? with chocolate?? So I initially made it with half quantities so as not to waste too much of anything! I really love the chocolate mylk, so wanted to make sure there was enough left to swig on its own! I have to say you do need a pretty heavy duty blender to whizz up carrots and cashew nuts without being left with lots of porridgey bits. Mine is pretty average, so with the carroty smoothies I do get the odd chunk flying around to crunch on. I had to whizz it all up on Max for a good 20 seconds. My smoothie was a bit thicker than it should have been at first, as I was being stingy with the delicious choccy mylk. So the result was pretty much like creamy nutty chocolate porridge. I surprisingly couldn't taste the orange or the carrot, it just gave the mylk a lot more oomph, more body and nuttiness. I ended up thinning it down with hazelnut cacao drink and a bit of non choccy Rebel Mylk, which gave me a rather tasty
