In the Reboot Kitchen: Choc-Hazelnut Smoothie

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Chocolate and hazelnut is a classic combo because it offers the perfect balance of salty, sweet and decadent. That familiar and delicious flavor inspired my smoothie for this week…a Choco-Hazelnut Smoothie! It’s naturally high in fiber with all the wonderful benefits of raw cacao powder. Raw cacao is high in anti-oxidants 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. You can also juice the hazelnuts in a Breville Fountain Crush and it comes out as creamy Hazelnut Milk. Don’t have a Breville Fountain Crush? No problem! Enter to win one today. We are giving away one a day for 60 days (23 more to go!)
