8 – Raw Chocolate Moccachino

Week 8 – Raw Chocolate Moccachino

Click on photo above for video.

I can’t keep from sharing this one!  This drink replaces coffee for me on most days.  It has the caffeine if I want it to, or it can be made without caffeine, using carob powder.

The simplest version contains:

1-2 Cups of coconut water (I buy this in bulk)

1/2 Tablespoon of raw cacao powder & 1/2 Tablespoon of raw carob powder (can use one or the other also – 1 Tblsp)

1 – 2 Tablespoons of raw agave nectar (can substitute with raw honey if you prefer)

1 – 2 Tablespoons of sesame seeds

1 (or half) Frozen or regular banana

(Optional:  1 – 2 Tablespoons of coconut butter, for some almost crunchy chocolate chips inside)

Blend the ingredients together.  Chill for 1 hour, or overnight for a morning drink.

Pour it into a “to go” cup, and you won’t need to drive through anywhere for a drink.

This week you will need

– frozen bananas (1/2 banana per smoothie)

 – fruit:

Red – strawberries or raspberries

Purple – Blueberries

Ask your kids what color smoothie or shake they would like, and blend the above ingredients.

Pour & add a straw!

This is one of my favorite ways to get my fruit quota for the day.
