Chocolate Sesame Seed Smoothie - FOOD PHOTO SHOOT

in #photography4 years ago

Chocolate Tahini Smoothie. (2).jpg

So It’s another beautiful week and I know we’ve all got life going on all around us so I’m keeping it short and sweet today. (I've got lots of packing to do for the travels this month ;) )I’m just popping in to share this smoothie recipe that I made this past week because it’s one any smoothie lover is going to be thrilled with. That is, of course, unless you’re one of those fruity smoothie people who think chocolate should be strictly in desserts. You’re not, right???

This smoothie is simple, fast, and only a few ingredients. It’s also gluten free, dairy free, and vegan, and you can adapt it very easily too. For example, peanut butter is a great sub for the tahini and if you want it creamier just trade out the almond milk for regular or some lite coconut cream for something really decadent!

Chocolate Tahini Smoothie

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 1 serving (about 2 cups)


1 tablespoon tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 cup almond milk (plain or vanilla)
1/2 of a large banana (or a whole one for a thicker and more filling smoothie)
1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup ice (optional)
1 tablespoon natural sweetener such as honey or maple syrup, or to taste (use stevia for a sugar free option)
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash of sea salt (optional but so good!)
Optional garnishes: sasame seeds, cocoa powder, shaved dark chocolate


Combine all of your ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. Top with some shaved dark chocolate, cocoa powder, and/or sesame seeds if you want. That's it, enjoy!

aaah this is way too good be true

aaah this is way too good be true

Wow, what interesting ingredients, but knowing my way around a kitchen pretty well it does all make sense including the spinich, as long as you don't put in too much, that may be a bit weird with a spinish flavor, but I'm sure with the right amount you can't even taste it.

Very cool Gringa. I like this one a lot.

On another note....umm, please check steemchat, I want you to know about this project that I just launched.

Have a great day! -Dan
