Decadent Black Bean Based Orange & Chocolate Spread

Decadent Black Bean Based Orange & Chocolate Spread
If there is one great way to get your beans into you without knowing it, this is it 🙂 It tastes decadent, rich and just gorgeous. I call it 'spread', but it is excellent as a sauce or a dip, like in the picture, or for cake layers, you name it. But whatever you name it, I'm pretty sure as a breakfast, with fruit to dip, it will make you start the day with a smile on your face!

You need
  • 200 grams black beans

  • zest of 1 orange
  • and optional, 2 pipettes (about ¾ tsp) of stevia - depending on how sweet you like it.
To do
  1. blend the beans, cacao powder an agave nectar with a stick blender or in a small blender
  2. stir through the zest
  3. taste and add stevia if you like
Serve with fruit to dip, on toast or a sandwich (great for your lunch box), or with dessert. If you'd like it thinner for a sauce, you could dilute with a nut milk or orange juice, or both.
Nutritional value is per cup, but ¼ cup gives you plenty for a 1-person fruit dip 🙂
