Spiced Chocolate Plum Smoothie

Spiced Chocolate Plum Smoothie {raw, dairy-free, refined sugar-free}

5 from 2 reviews

A flavorful, creamy dairy-free smoothie combining the sweetness of plums with the intensity of cacao and warm spices.


  • 3 ripe plums, pitted and rough chopped for blending (go for sweet plum varieties)
  • ½ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (I used vanilla almond milk)
  • 1-2 soft medjool dates, pitted
  • a handful of ice
  • 1 tsp ground chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 -2 tbsp (depending on how sweet your plums are) maple syrup (or agave, coconut nectar, etc.)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • a tiny pinch (less than an ⅛ of a tsp) of each of the following spices: ground cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, and turmeric
  • tiny dash of salt
  • Optional: 1 ripe banana (adds thickness, volume, and sweetness -- especially good if your plums aren't sweet)


  1. Blend all ingredients in a blender until mixture is smooth. Top with your favorite toppings {if using} and enjoy!
