In the Reboot Kitchen: Choc-Hazelnut Smoothie

Chocolate and hazelnut is a classic combo because it offers the perfect balance of salty, sweet and decadent. This Choco-Hazelnut Smoothie is naturally high in fiber with all the wonderful benefits of raw cacao powder. Raw cacao is high in antioxidants and magnesium, which can be one of the fabulous reasons why women may crave chocolate before a period as we need extra magnesium before and during a period. Great excuse I say!

This recipe can be thick due to the high-fiber pulp remaining in the smoothie, if you prefer a thinner smoothie you can sieve out the pulp after you blend the nuts and the water together with a cheese cloth or nut milk bag or you can add extra water.


  • ¼ cup (135 g) hazelnuts (soaked overnight in water – optional)
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup of ice
  • 4-5 fresh dates
  • 2 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • Pinch of cinnamon


  1. Blend the hazelnuts and water in a blender at high speed.
  2. Remove the seeds from the dates.
  3. Add remaining ingredients & blend until smooth, about 45 – 60 seconds.
  4. Serve and enjoy.
