Since the eighty degree temps and high humidity have gotten us all pregamed up for summer, the only perfect way to celebrate is with food and beverage.
Frozen beverages are my kryptonite during the summertime. A kryptonite I will completely accept any day of the week.
I’ve been back on a mainly liquids as nourishment kick and figured I’d try to fuse my two loves…juices and chocolate.
(The only pre-prep you need to do is freeze some ripe bananas and make some iced coffee cubes.)
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2-1 c unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder
- 1 tbsp. maple syrup
- 2-3 frozen iced coffee cubes (I used vanilla creme brulee flavor)
This has been tripling as my breakfast, pre-workout and caffeine boost in the morning. It’s also super satisfying in that it abates sweet cravings. I have noticed my cravings at night have decreased immensely while incorporating this smoothie into my diet.
What’s your favorite beverage or food during the summer?
Peace, love and smoothies!
