Raw Vegan Chocolate Macadamia Smoothie26
Piggies. Stop! If you want to taste one of the best raw vegan smoothies on the planet, this raw chocolate macadamia smoothie is it! This raw vegan chocolate shake is absolutely scrumptious. I cannot rave enough about it. I blended up this sip of raw chocolate magic last night, and I had sweet dreams all night long! If you have had a bad day at work, need a pick me up, or just want to indulge in a moment of sheer bliss, this is your perfect blend! If you are looking for fabulous blender recipes and Vitamix recipes you are going to be in piggy heaven.
But beware, your snout will be fantasizing about all things macadamia and chocolate for years to come, and might want to visit this trough more often than your tail will permit! This raw chocolate smoothie is decadent, rich, creamy, and delicious. Do yourself a favour, and don’t even waste another second reading my silly recipe post. It just cannot do this vegan chocolate smoothies justice. Quite simply, “angels pissing on your tongue” Sorry for those of you who are allergic to verbal profanity. But sometimes basic vocabulary fails to deliver.
If you want to make this chocolate shake colder, add in some ice cubes. If you want it richer, feel free to get a bit more heavy handed with the cacao – that is for you self-respecting chocoholics out there with the motto being, “the richer the better”. If you want your raw chocolate smoothie sweeter, feel free to tempt fate. But I will warn you, for me, this raw chocolate shake got sweeter the more I drank it. And because I was a stellar pig and devoured the whole trough on my own (two full glasses), I found that less, really is more! My sister TOTALLY disagreed and could have had more of her chocolate rich version! Either way, I’ll take out a stake in this shake and say that is sublime!

Piggy Cooking Tips
the best way to clean your blender
After blending up something sticky, gooey or smelly, just place a few drops of soap in the carriage with some warm water and blend on high until all of the congealed food slips away from the blades and sides. Then repeat this process. Then rinse with water and presto! Clean carriage.
If you have smells or stains repeat this process with some bicarbonate of soda or lemon juice and water.
