Donut Dessert Smoothie

Are you looking for a delicious dessert recipe to help satisfy those sweet tooth cravings? Then look no further because I have you covered.

I’ve recently been travelling the good old ‘land of the free’ and I’m feeling inspired by their love of all things decadent, sweet & delicious … the donut! The problem is they are full of refined sugars and i’m sure a number of not so nice ingredients that aren’t exactly good for you. With that in mind, I decided to create a health-IER alternative for your next sweet tooth craving. This Cinnamon-Choc Donut Smoothie will even have Homer Simpson reaching for seconds … DOH!

Cinnamon-Choc Donut Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1 coconut with flesh
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk, unsweetened
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 green apple
  • 6 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • Macadamias, pistachios or any nut of your choosing (crush enough to use as topping on your smoothie)

Optional: 1/2 cup macadamias (if needed to make it more creamy)

Chocolate Topping

Raw Blend Raw Chocolate Topping Recipe

Method

  1. Make your Raw Blend raw chocolate topping first and line the inside of your glass. I added a little at the bottom too for a nice burst of chocolate flavour when you get to the bottom at the end.
  2. Put all the smoothie ingredients into the Vitamix 2L container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  3. Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and quickly increase the speed to 10, then override to High.
  4. Use tamper to effectively press the ingredients into the blades if required whilst processing.
  5. Blend for 60 seconds or until desired consistency is reached. If you would like you smoothie mix thicker you can add in your macadamias now and blend until smooth.
  6. Stop the machine, poor into your glass and top with crushed nuts, sprinkle a little raw cacao on top and enjoy!

Make sure you use a good quality high powered blender to ensure a smooth and creamy blend every time! We can’t go past the Vitamix.

Go Do – Nuts!
