Usually I try to consume a dairy reduced diet however this drastically changed in the second and third trimester when I could not not go a day without consuming a litre of full-cream milk! I recall the lady in Gloria Jeans asking if I wanted cream in the iced chocolate I'd ordered and given the size of my belly and the look in my eye prompted to fill it right up!
So in an attempt to wean myself off dairy which has now become a bit of a habit I have discovered a raw food alternative by Karen Knowler- The Raw Food Coach, changed it a little and found it to be a fantastic substitute!
My Raw Food Chocolate Smoothie
Blend with ice:
1/2 cup Cashews
1 1/2cup Water
1 tbsp Cacao powder (Unlike Cocoa it hasn't been refined or processed and has a lot of anti-oxidants).
Honey to taste
Add strawberries or banana for something different.
