Visit http://www.learnrawfood.com to see more easy raw food recipes. In this video, raw food chef and author Jennifer Cornbleet shows you how to prepare a nutritious Chocolate Green Smoothie made with sweet fruits, leafy green vegetables and a spoonful or two of everyone's favorite ingredient: chocolate. This is a popular raw food recipe from her book Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People Revised.
Green Smoothies are a 21st Century answer to an age old question: what's an easy way to get the nutrition your body needs while keeping your taste-buds happy? In this video, Jennifer Cornbleet answers that question as she demonstrates the basics of Green Smoothie preparation...and shows how the addition of cocoa or raw cacao turns this vitamin-and-mineral-packed powerhouse of nutrition into a chocolate-lover's delight.
A raw chocolate smoothie is a perfect way for adults to re-live the 'chocolate milk days' of their youth, but without all the cholesterol-laden dairy-fat and refined sugar. And for kids, Jennifer's raw Chocolate Green Smoothie is an ideal 'gateway' treat to get them enthusiastic about the good taste of healthy good.
You'll learn how to layer ingredients into your blender so that they mix quickly and efficiently into a silken raw food smoothie without lumps. Jennifer shares tips for working with pitted dates, including a simple technique that makes blending this sometimes sticky fruit a snap. And she will show you the secret of balancing your ingredients to achieve the best possible flavor.
When it comes to the most important ingredient -- chocolate -- Jennifer outlines several options. You'll learn the difference between traditional cocoa powder and raw cacao powder, and what each can bring to the recipe. Then it's everybody into the pool (or blender) for a quick whirl into a scrumptious drink.
When a drink tastes so much like dessert, it's hard to believe there's a serving of green leafy vegetables in it. Don't tell the kids. Or the grown-ups. All they need to know is that a Chocolate Green Smoothie is delicious.
