The vote was clear, everyone wanted me to try this Chocolate Milk with Pear & Ginger Smoothie.
Innocent call this one, Posh Stuff!
Chocolate Milk with Pear & Ginger
200ml semi-skimmed milk (or coconut milk)
40g bar 70% dark chocolate
1 ripe pear
1/2 piece of crystallised stem ginger (I used, 1 heaped teaspoon of ground ginger)
- Break the chocolate into a small pan, add the milk and heat gently until the chocolate has melted.
- Peel and core the pear, then cut into quarters.
- Add the pear, chocolate milk and ginger to a blender. Whizz until smooth.
- You can drink this warm or cold.
Serves two or one very greedy person!
A lovely, velvet smooth chocolate drink, that tastes luxurious!
We enjoyed this smoothie on Christmas morning, as we were opening our Christmas presents. Christmas music was playing and the lights on the tree were twinkling, while the cats bounded about in the rustling wrapping paper.
