Smoothie of the Morning- Carob Delight

This is one of our favorite evening treat smoothies, but occasionally we use it as a morning smoothie, just because it’s so yummy! It’s very creamy, and tastes like a carob milkshake.

Carob Delight

Course: Beverage
Author: Ann Timm


  • 2 handfuls of raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 cups purified water
  • 1 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp. vanilla my addition
  • 1 handful of pitted dried dates (about 6-8)
  • 4 frozen bananas
  • 1 heaping Tbsp. carob powder


  • Blend all ingredients together. This takes a little bit longer to blend because of the seeds and the dates, but it's worth it! If you have little pieces of dates that don't quite blend up, it's ok because they taste like candy!

If you’ve never tried (or heard of) carob, it is the pod of a tree, that has a sweet, somewhat chocolaty flavor to it and is ground into powder which can be used as a cocoa powder substitute. The taste is not the same as chocolate, but it is a healthier alternative (although I still love true, dark chocolate).

  1. I also love this smoothie. “Rejuvenate your Life” is one of my favorite recipe books, even though I’m not vegan or a raw foodist.
    As a suggestion; I’ve found that grinding the seeds in a coffee grinder before adding them makes the process much easier.
