Energizing Mocha-Almond Smoothies

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan cook rutabaga and eggplant in enough boiling water to cover, about 15 minutes or until very tender. Drain and rinse with cold water to cool quickly.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine the boiling water and the espresso powder. Stir until dissolved. Add brown sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved. Cover and chill while vegetables cook.
  3. In a blender combine rutabaga mixture, brown sugar mixture, almond milk, banana, almond butter, and cocoa powder. Cover and blend until very smooth, stopping and scraping sides of blender as needed. Add ice cubes. Cover and blend until smooth.
  4. Pour into tall glasses and serve immediately.

It isn't really bad, but I wouldn't make it again. I find the rutabaga is still perceptible.
