Smoothie…or milkshake?

Hey guys, I’m sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted but I haven’t been cooking much this past week.  With amazing friends helping to nourish my family while I rest and heal, who needs to cook, thank goodness?   Anyway, one of my sweet neighbors thought I would enjoy this chocolate almond treat and man was she right.  Ok, so I haven’t had a milkshake in well, many years, but I swear this was the next best thing. Scott loved it too but said it was more like a smoothies than milkshake.  It’s all about expectations! Anyway, milkshake…smoothie…whatever, this was fabulous and felt so good going down.  Thanks D!

This is what you need for this Chocolate Almond Drink:

  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup dark local honey
  • 4 cup ice cubes
Place all ingredients into the Vitamix (you can use any high speed blender).  Turn the blender on and quickly increase the speed from variable 1 to variable 10, then to high.  Blend for 1 minute or until desired consistency.  Serve immediately and enjoy!

I’ll be back to cooking this week so promise to get back to posting more soon! Have a great week everyone!!
