More Chocolate anyone?
This one is pretty straight forward.
Like Chocolate? Check.
Like Coffee? Check.
Like sweet, iced, lusciously energizing beverages? Check.
Let’s not talk about our occasional jaunts to Starbucks, K? I won’t tell if you won’t, and for the record, they do a lot of things pretty well, and I kind of have to credit them with getting me hooked on coffee in the first place (and life is (just a little) better with coffee in it, in this girls’ very humble opinion).
In all seriousness, I consider myself very fortunate to have access to some of the very best roasted coffee in the world – check out the roaster I work for here – and I don’t really hit many Starbucks, unless I am traveling.
But who doesn’t love a decadent pick me up now and again?
Crafting this insanely delicious concoction isn’t rocket science, but you do need to be prepared (as in you have to have made the almond milk and the ice cream from the last two posts)…
Almond Iced Mocha:
- 1 cup Mindful Almond Milk
- 2 oz. fresh espresso or coffee
- 1/4 cup Almond Chocolate Ice Cream
- 1/2 to 1 cup of ice
Combine everything in your blender and enjoy!
You might also want to cover your bases with a good activity planned for after ingesting this.
Chances are you’ll be pretty juiced and I’d really hate to see that energy go to waste…
Got a book to finish? Write it. Gardening? Have the shovels and gloves ready! 10K time you want to beat? Now’s your chance.
Or, if you are anything like me, you might just kick back and enjoy another kind of activity that I wish I could do more often.
The joy of doing nothing.
The energy of the mind is the essence of life.
However you choose to enjoy your time, do it well.
And do it often!
So that will wrap the sweet stuff for a bit…(I promise)..
I am excited to share some wonderful savory recipes and an idea for a series I’ve been working on.
Here are a few shots of the Not So Fast photo shoot we did on Sunday, it was a blast!
Huge thanks to all the new readers who have shared your enthusiasm with me, you are all amazing!
- What do you do with your excess energy?
- Are you a coffee drinker too?
Happy Wednesday folks!
Yours in Less,
