My sweet tooth was raging this morning, and so I decided to put a chocolaty twist on my Green Monster this morning. Enter the Chocolaty Green Monster.
Chocolaty Green Monster
- 2 handfuls spinach
- 1 frozen banana
- 3/4 cup soya milk
- 3-6 teaspoons cocoa powder, depending on how chocolaty you like it!
- 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
- toppings of choice (I used Grape Nuts)
Instant light hot chocolate powder! My mum loves this stuff, so we have a ton of it in the house. Wasn’t quite as good as cocoa powder, but is lighter and still gave the Green Monster a lovely chocolaty taste! Would still go with normal cocoa powder in the future though The finished product:
Lovely and thick, just how I like it! And stirring in the Grape Nut topping gives it such a great crunchy texture!
A Cocoa Loco Nakd bar! My favourite flavour so far I think, but I have so many still to try!
So for those of you who, like me, have specific dietary requirements, do people generally deal with that well when cooking for you? What’s the strangest/worst thing someone has made for you? The last time I was round my grandma’s, she served me a ready meal ‘Vegetarian Moussaka’, which would have been fine, except for the fact that she hadn’t cooked/defrosted it properly, so it was literally frozen solid in the middle!
Have a great evening everyone!
