Raw cacao chocolate superfood smoothie, dairy-free

Giada Correale / Sep 13, 2016

This recipe makes for the best indulging and intense chocolate smoothie, only featuring all-natural ingredients, good for your body and health! Thick, chocolate-y, dark but sweet! The dates naturally sweeten the mixture, but if you like things on the sweet side I’d suggest to add a splash of agave syrup. The addition of almonds – a good dose of healthy fats, and of a sachet of VITL Greens, makes it a superfood bomb, good for hair, skin and nail health especially!


Serves 1


  • 1 ripe banana (from the fridge) 
  • 3 dates 
  • 3 teaspoons raw cocoa powder 
  • 6-7 almonds 
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil 
  • 1 sachet of VITL Greens 
  • 100ml soy or almond milk (from the fridge) 
  • (Optional) A splash of agave syrup 


  1. Slice your banana into big chunks and pop it into your smoothie blender, add in the stoned dates, the cocoa powder, the almonds, coconut oil, VITL Greens and your non-dairy milk of choice. 
  2. Blend on high speed for a few seconds until smooth. Taste and add a splash of agave syrup if you fancy some extra sweetness.
  3. Serve into a tall glass with a straw and enjoy fresh!
