Guest Blog: Vegan Chocolate Protein Dip
Posted on January 15 2016
Fresh in this week is a guest blog from one of our Nutri Fans, Sara Matharu. Sara got in touch with this awesome Superfood Chocolate Protein Dip. Here’s the lowdown:
High in protein? Check!
Filled with superfood goodies? Check!
Scrumptiously Chocolatey? Check!
It’s perfect as a spread, goes great with our Superfood Porridge or granola, and ideal for dipping fruit into. It also makes for a perfect homemade (and healthier version) of a popular chocolatey spread that we’d rather not name but rhymes with ‘umbrella’.
Tempted? Go on, give it a try…
Go grab yourself:
- 280g chopped dates
- 125ml water
- 1 can black beans, chickpeas or cannelini beans, drained and rinsed very well
- 120g almond butter
- 2 tbsp. Nutriseed Raw Cocoa Powder
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp. almond milk
- 1 tbsp. Nutriseed Maca Root Powder
- ½ tsp. cinnamon
- 2 tbsp. Nutriseed Raspberry Powder
- A pinch pink Himalayan rock salt
You ready? Here goes…
- There’s a little overnight prep for this one. The night before, cover the chopped dates with freshly boiled water. Leave to plump and soften.
- The following day, transfer the dates and the soaking liquid to a food processor.
- Next, add the drained rinsed beans, almond butter, Nutriseed Raw Cocoa Powder, vanilla extract, almond milk, Nutriseed Maca Root Powder,cinnamon, salt and Nutriseed Raspberry Powder.
- Blend until completely smooth, adding more milk if you its too thick.
- Refrigerate for at least an hour to allow flavours to blend together.
- Use as a dip for apple slices or fresh berries
- Swirl on top of your Nutriseed Superfood Porridge (or Nutriseed Porridge Oats)
- Spread onto rye crackers or toast and top with fresh fruit
- Mix it all up with granola, chopped banana and a splash of almond milk
- Add a few generous tbsp. to your smoothie
- Or simply be cheeky and eat with a spoon!
