A yummy twist to your basic ice cream sandwich!
This is not a sweet, decadent smoothie, but a superfood smoothie that will keep you going for hours on end! This smoothie is strongly modeled on “The New Cacao Beverage” from Naked Chocolate, by David Wolfe. This drink is closer to smoothie territory, whereas the original is more like a nut mylk in its consistency. By the way, version 1.0 was somewhat of a flop, so I came back with this little bad boy!
This recipe is slightly adapted from a crust recipe for a Blackforest Chocolate Cheesecake on gliving.tv. It went over really well at a Thanksgiving potluck last year!

Sometimes you just want some comfort food. This weekend was one of those times. I woke up on Saturday morning, wondering what I was going to bring to the raw pot-luck that day. My mind was filled with thoughts of easy to make, savory stand-by’s, but nothing jumped out at me. As I looked at the what I had in the cabinets, it dawned on me that it might just be a comfort food kinda day.
I couldn’t be more pleased with how these turned out. Folks at the pot-luck gave them a big thumbs up and of course, the plate was empty when the pot-luck was over. Soft, sweet, chocolaty, just like how a brownie should be, but with the frosting on top, these will take you right into comfort food bliss!
