Homemade: Hot Chocolate Smoothie

It's been rather chilly these past couple day which is ideal for a nice hot beverage; yet I'm craving this frosty Chocolate Chia Smoothie and cannot get over an insatiable thirst for a chocolate chia beverage, so I came up with a compromise. That is, to make a hot chocolate version of the smoothie. As it turns out, the consistency is rather similar to a traditional Mexican drink known as atole de champurrado!

  • 1 1/4 c unsweetened quinoa milk
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 2 T raw cacao powder
  • 1 T peanut butter
  • 1 T honey
  • 2 T chia 
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 c kale

Heat 1 cup  of milk over medium heat. Gently sir in the vanilla and cacao.
Finely grind the chia seeds then stir in with the milk for a light creamy feel.
Blend 1/4 cup of milk with peanut butter, honey, banana and kale until smooth.
Pour the warm milk mixture with the smoothie blend and pulse for a frothy consistency.

Sprinkle chia seeds to garnish, serve in a mug and enjoy!
