Last night my booja chocolates kept me awake - arrghh! I am so sensitive to caffeine. So the new rule is no chocolate after dinner. I might have to start investigating decent carob recipes and products - anyone have any suggestions??
Feeling somewhat down this morning and i find i'm craving something soothing, creamy and sweet.
So heres my...
|Creamy Cacao, Pollen Breakfast Smoothie |
2-3 (soaked) dried dates. If you don't soak the dates you'll end up with bits. The soaking may also activate enzymes.
1 cup - 1 1/2 cold water, 1/2 cup ice (or to taste)
2 tbsp pecan butter or 1/4 cup pecans if you have a vitamix blender
1 tbsp ground flax seeds
1 tbsp hemp protein
1 1/2 tbsp cacao nibs
1 tsp bee pollen (test for allergy before first-time use, 1 grain under the tongue)
Few drops natural Vanilla essence
Add ingredients to blender and zoom! Oh btw if you don't have the best blender in the world add only 1/2 cup water at the start so all the 'bits' get processed then add the rest of the water/ice at the end.
