Before you have a gag reflex thinking about what the bacon smoothie might look like, take comfort knowing it’s still a fruit smoothie.
The list of ingredients are:
1/2 cup yogurt
1 cup soy milk
1/4 cup acai
1/2 cup frozen raspberries and blueberries
1 TSP greens (dietary supplement)
2 strips of slow cooked, savory maple bacon
1-2 TBSP dark chocolate powder
1 TBSP Agave
Pretty simple. Just throw it all in a blender and blend it.
The reason the recipe works is the chocolate. Chocolate and bacon go together, but there still needs to be fruit. Raspberries, blueberries and acai not only go with chocolate, but they’re also good for you and you need something good to offset the bacon, which is not a health food.
Play around with the amounts. I find with this recipe you can taste the raspberry, chocolate and bacon all equally, nothing overpowers the taste.
