Black Bean Brownie Batter Breakfast Drink

So, Saucy has been around for over a year now.  You’ve seen and tasted the yumminess.  But do you trust me?  Do you really trust me??  Okay, good.  Then check this out…

I’m always looking for new ideas.  Something “outside the box,” if you will.  When I read about a Brownie Batter Hummus, I was intrigued.  Having already stripped the sharp and distinctive tahini flavor from my own Sweet Potato Hummus, I knew it could easily have an enjoyably sweet flavor.  So I tried the recipe.  And I liked it!  For me though, it seemed a bit, I don’t know, in need of tweaking.  The more I tweaked it, making it my own, the looser it came out.  And so was born my newest breakfast drink.

Black Bean Brownie Batter Breakfast Drink

  • 2 cups almond or coconut milk
  • 1 15.5 oz can black beans
  • ¼ cup dark cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons Stevia
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut or almond butter (opt)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach (opt)
  • 1-2 teaspoons instant coffee (opt)
  • cinnamon for garnish (opt)

Drain and thoroughly rinse your black beans in a colander.  Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.  Pour half of the drink, garnish, and enjoy!  Save the other half of the drink for tomorrow morning, or for a post workout treat.

**I did find that the 2nd serving had thickened up a bit overnight.  If desired, you can add a splash of almond milk to help thin it back out.**


I don’t normally do an official calorie count.  But ya know.  In the name of the New Year, I am trying to pay more attention to what I eat.  And because I’m calling this a breakfast drink (or lunch or post workout), I decided to tally the score.  For this calculation, I used regular almond milk and creamy peanut butter.  The only thing I did not take into account was the spinach, cinnamon, or coffee, which would be minimal at best.

Counts are based per serving; 2 servings per recipe.
