When the carob pods arrived I wondered, what the heck do I do with these? Smoothies are my favourite mode of eating so I decided to pack a few into a smoothie and see how it went. The results were… awesome!
4 carob pods
2 large heaped spoons of macadamia nut butter
2 heaped teaspoons of vanilla powder
1 tablespoon of agave (or your sweetener of choice)
Put the number one (finest) screen in your Ladyship jug. Add the macadamia nut butter, carob pods, vanilla powder, agave and top with water until you have around 400ml.
Use the auto function until the blender stops and beeps to remind you it’s finished, or pulse it a few times and blend for around 30 seconds. Turn on the tap and fill your glass!
If you are using a regular blender simply add all of your ingredients, blend and strain through a nut milk bag.
The results are delicious, nutritious and fulfilling. I wasn’t hungry for hours after this smoothie.
