I'm just swimming in gratitude and joy at this moment. I've got a nom-a-licious Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie to glug-glug this afternoon, the sun is shining and the birds are chirping outside my test kitchen, and I'm planning some awesome giveaways to celebrate the launch of my new cookbook, Let Us All Eat Cake. Whoop!
I'll fill you in on the details once everything is all set, but let's just say for now that this Summer is going to be feeling a little like Christmas... hmmm...
Ok, so here's the smoothie recipe that's now in my belly. You gotta try this, it's really freakin' awesome.
Chocolate-Almond Butter Smoothie
6 oz unsweetened coconut milk (or milk of your choice)
1 banana, fresh or frozen
3 pitted dates
2 tablespoons raw organic cacao powder
2 tablespoons raw almond butter
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
ice cubes, if desired
Blend, blend, blend and enjoy!
