Delicious! Love new ideas for smoothies and who doesn’t love chocolate?!


Angie - Sept. 23, 2021, 3:14 a.m.

I make this every Sunday morning for myself and my husband as a pre-workout brekky. We absolutely love it. Thank you for all of the amazing recipes! Love your channel!

So lovely to hear, Angie! Thank you for being part of our PUL community 🥰

Yummy! Grateful to have a way to use up some of my zucchini from the garden. I subbed cacao nibs (and doubled the amount) in place of cocoa. I also used macadamia milk instead of oat. Has a nice caramel hint to it, but it's not too sweet and not too bland. Thank you!

PUL Team - Sept. 22, 2021, 10:16 p.m.

Mmm sounds delicious, Stephanie, thank you! It means so much 🙂


Florentina Gashi - Sept. 10, 2021, 12:17 p.m.

Love it. You're such a money saver. Buying a smoothie like this good normally costs a lot. But now I can make my own extremely healthy and delicious smoothies at home. Thank you.

PUL Team - Sept. 12, 2021, 3:27 a.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the smoothie, Florentina, it means so much 🙂

Thank you so much for this delicious recipe!! I grow my own veggies and around this time of the year most of us gardeners ate zucchini in all possible ways and tend to get a little tired of them but they still produce an abundance of fruits... In the surge to find new ways for the use of zucchini I found this recipe thanks to your filter options. I changed it up a little (skiped the coffee, added some cinamon and peanut butter) and was super amazed with the result - unbelievable, that there are no "bad" ingredients in it!! And of course I'm super happy to have found another way to use (and store!) some more of my plenty zucchinis :)

Thank you so much for the incredible work you are doing - I love your videos an recipes, you truly are an inspiration to so many people to change their diets in a good way!

PUL Team - Sept. 8, 2021, 6:42 p.m.

Hi Almut! So glad that the smoothie is being enjoyed, you're much too kind! We're so grateful to have you in our PUL family. Thank YOU ☺️

Another masterclass smoothie! I’m probably a bit childish (or love the simplest of joys), but I giggle whenever I eat a perfectly creamy and balanced PUL smoothie😆😋. Love the cacao and espresso: it feels like eating a liquid praline. I seldom have frozen zucchini at home, so I used one banana for one serving. I think the sweet banana isn’t an issue, as the bitter ingredients dampen the former. I also liked to substitute roasted cashews for the same weight of cashew butter. It mixes up so well with the rest. Again, topping this smoothie with PUL chocolate fig & hazelnut granola and berries becomes an indulgent breakfast👌🏻

PUL Team - Aug. 17, 2021, 5:30 a.m.

Mmm sounds so lovely, Louise, thank you! It's so appreciated 💚


Despi - July 24, 2021, 6:34 p.m.

This is my favourite smoothie! i can't make it creamy for some reason, but i prefer it that way because i like to drink it instead of coffee. I also like to add a little peanutbutter or haselnutbutter. Thank you Sadia

PUL Team - July 26, 2021, 12:18 a.m.

We're so glad you're enjoying the smoothie, Despi, nut butter sounds like a delcious addition!


Charlotte - July 9, 2021, 12:36 p.m.

This smoothie is one of my favourites for sure! I am not usually a coffee drinker but the combination of chocolate and coffee is too good to miss in this recipe. We enjoy this thick and creamy smoothie regularly at home and you would never know there was zucchini in there at all! I love the combo of flavours in the smoothie itself and the toppings add an extra something special.

PUL Team - July 14, 2021, 4:01 p.m.

This means so much to hear, Charlotte, thank you! So happy you're enjoying the smoothie 😃


Archa - July 8, 2021, 11:56 p.m.

I have tried a lot of your recipes and in love with all of them. But this one is exceptional, I am a chocolate and coffee lover so as you can imagine I looooooove this one. It's perfect with granola and banana coins. Thanks a lot for this recipe.

PUL Team - July 11, 2021, 2:24 p.m.

The thanks is to you, Archa, you're too kind! 💖


Kirstyn - July 8, 2021, 9:20 p.m.

I've been using a hazelnut instant coffee in this recipe and its been great!


Roda - June 3, 2021, 6:05 a.m.

Not a fan of medjool dates growing up, but because of PUL, I started using it for meal preps like this and I'm enjoying it so far.
Thank you for sharing hearty meals and drinks. More Blessings!

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 7:57 p.m.

So wonderful to hear you've been enjoying the recipe, Roda! Thank you for the kind words and support ✨😃


Sarah Seiner - May 23, 2021, 6:14 p.m.

Dear PUL-Team! I would like to try out this recipe, but I don't like coffee. Should I leave it out or is there any good substitude?
I really love your work and the new website! You have influenced my life in so many positive ways and inspired me to live a better life. Thank you really much and keep on the good work!!
Lots of love from Austria!

PUL Team - May 24, 2021, 7:42 a.m.

Hey there, Sarah! We'd suggest leaving out the espresso if you don't enjoy coffee. Thank you for your very kind words and support as well, it truly means so much! Lots of love back to Austria 🥰


Rae - May 19, 2021, 2:32 a.m.

Quick (and probably a bit stupid) question! Are the cashews salted or unsalted?
I'm so trying this!!

Plant Girl - May 22, 2021, 5:33 p.m.

Unsalted!

PUL Team - May 22, 2021, 7:30 p.m.

A lovely question, Rae, and thank you for answering it Plant Girl! We indeed used unsalted cashews 🙂


Victoria - May 11, 2021, 9:52 a.m.
