Serves 4-6 When I ask my daughter if she wants a pink or brown smoothie, she's sweetly confused because she loves pink so much but she also knows that brown means CHOCOLATE! :-)
1 cup local fresh or frozen berries
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup raw tahini
1-2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
drizzle of local raw honey or (non-local, lower glycemic) agave
Preparation Fill VitaMix pitcher with the first 6 ingredients and add enough filtered water to reach the 6 or 7 cup mark. Blend on low and switch to high for a few seconds. Pour into your favorite glasses and enjoy! CLEAN UP TIP: Clean up is easy in the VitaMix. Just add water back into the pitcher and run the machine for a few seconds. The harder to clean stuff will clean up easily. You can rinse again if you want and then put in dish drainer to dry. If you'd like, you can add a tiny drop of dish detergent in the water and run the machine to clean it up.
