Vegan Chocolate Smoothie


1 cup / 240 mls non-dairy milk

1 frozen banana, or a fresh one and a handful of ice

½ cup / 100 grams cooked sweet potato or yam, or pumpkin

1 tablespoon cacao powder

1 tiny pinch of good-quality fine sea salt 

1 tablespoon flaxseed or chia seed (OPTIONAL)

1 tablespoon maple syrup or 1 date (OPTIONAL)


Add all ingredients to a blender and whizz until smooth. If you don’t have a sweet tooth omit the maple syrup/date.

Taste and add a drop more maple syrup or a date if more sweetness is needed. Blend again to incorporate.
