Can we talk about how much I love this Healthy Tahini Chocolate Smoothie right now?! This has a creamy, nutty taste that is so unique and delicious.
I’m so addicted that I’ve been having this every morning for breakfast lately! Oh yeah, did I mention it’s Dairy Free? Yessss!
Do you remember a few weeks ago when I made this Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie? Well step on over Peanut Butter, Tahini is taking over!
I’ve been on a complete Chocolate kick lately. I have no idea why, maybe it’s stress, maybe it’s hormones, or maybe it’s just a totally natural thing that I should just go with. Ok I like the latter.
The next best thing to Chocolate for me is a Peanut Butter/Chocolate combo. But when I opened the cupboard this morning to grab a jar of Peanut Butter to add in to my favorite smoothie, all I found was an empty jar. Who does that? Who puts an empty jar back in the cupboard? Ah the joys of having teenagers in the house.
So I decided to experiment a little and add some Tahini to my Chocolate Smoothie.
All I can say is… Whoa!
This was sooo delicious! I mean, better than Peanut Butter, Yes!
The Tahini adds such a unique nutty flavor that’s kind of like Peanut Butter, but different. I know that’s probably not the best description, but honestly I can’t think of how else to describe it. Just try it and you will see what I mean. 🙂
Another great thing about Tahini is that it’s lower in Carbs than Peanut Butter and it’s Paleo. I don’t follow a Paleo diet or anything, but I do make Paleo meals from time to time just to mix things up and stay on a healthier track.
My favorite brand of Tahini to use right now is Once Again Seasame Tahini. I found it at my local health foods store, but you can also order it on Amazon if you can’t find it anywhere.
So along with the Tahini, add in Raw Organic Cacao Powder, some frozen Bananas, and Medjool Dates for a bit of sweetness.
Add all of the above ingredients to some Coconut Milk, or whatever your favorite non-dairy milk may be, blend up, and serve!
