I was looking to create a thick nourishing chocolate smoothie and this recipe was the delicious result. It was so rich and filling that I couldn’t finish it. So I put it in the fridge to drink the next day. To my surprise it was as thick as pudding.
So you can make this recipe and drink it immediately for a thick filling smoothie, or put it in bowls and enjoy it a day later as pudding. In the above photo, I topped my pudding with cacao nibs, coconut and walnuts.
Will you enjoy this recipe as a smoothie, pudding or both?
