I've been having major raw choclate cravings today. I stopped using condiments of all kinds, including cacao, awhile ago but tonight I needed a little induldge if you know what I'm saying. This one is simple. It's a mixture of bitter, tart and sweet. I didn't use any added sweeteners as the cherimoya needs to act as it's own natural sweet goodness in this drink. It's very nice to be able to appreciate natural flavors without having to add stuff to jazz things up. Coconut water, caco, cherimoya. Hits the spot.
My boyfriend bought me a Vita-Mix for Christmas, and I would have opened it on Christmas had the deliveryperson followed directions and didn't leave it on the front stoop for me to run into when I came home :(
This recipe was adapted from the Vita-Mix website (http://vitamix.ahoy.com/recipe/recipe.cgi/0/122/). He had no idea I 'tweaked' it; I fed it to my SAD friends and they LOVED it. Just in time for winter, too!
