There is no real reason for this post other than sometimes you just need to drink a brownie!
Truth be told, as kids my best friend Kathryn and I would make brownie batter (with eggs!), pour it in a thermos, jump on our bikes and sip it raw…how gross!!! It’s a wonder we never got sick!
This smoothie brought me back to the good old days
- 2 cups almond, soy or milk of your choice (add a drop of vanilla extract if using unflavored milk)
- 1 frozen banana
- 4 dates, pitted
- 2 heaping tablespoons of raw cacao or cocoa powder
- 2 heaping tablespoons of coconut manna
- Blend and enjoy!
I used some coconut manna that I had kicking around the house. Coconut manna is a butter made of coconut flesh. You can easily substitute coconut oil or any nut butter of your choice. I’m sure peanut butter would taste amazing!
Feel free to top with a little coconut whipped cream for fun, it’s the weekend
