This is adapted from the “I Am Luscious” recipe in “I Am Grateful: Recipes and Lifestyles of Cafe Gratitude”. I highly recommend this fabulous book! Every recipe I’ve tried so far has been delicious. I used to cap the amount of cacao powder in my smoothies and nut mylks at 1.5T, but for that pure cacao flavor, I’ve learned you need at least 2T. Why not splurge, you only live once!
I was trying to make chocolate pine nut yogurt, but I ended up making a richer version of this delicious nut mylk instead! Nut mylks made with coconut water rule! You can use any kind of nut, but a high oil content nut like the ones below are best if you want a creamy nut mylk.
When I get home from work, it’s time for my daily cacao fix! I have eight different combinations I use, and this is one of my favorites. I like to start out with a tablespoon of bee pollen straight, and then I follow it up with this little piece of heaven. Warning: This is very mildly sweetened, so many of you will need more goji berries to make it palatable for you! Also, I highly recommend the Artisana coconut butter, but if you use coconut oil, you might also need more gojis to sweeten it up.
I accidentally came up with this trying to make a smoothie earlier. It’s all superfood, and has the texture of traditional chocolate pudding!
So, here’s the story: For the past few days my roommate has been walking around munching on a bag of Newman’s Own Hint’O Mint sandwich cookies. I’ll admit it, at first I was jealous. But then, I got inspired! The result turned out fabulous. The filling tastes exactly like the center of a York Peppermint patty.
