On Saturday, I had an 8-hour shift at my side hustle. I did NOT want to go, but I am not one to skip an obligation.
My youngest assisted me. I’ve decided that to make future smoothie attempts easier on myself, I am going to move my smoothie of choice from the freezer to the fridge the night before I plan to make it. In the morning, it should be ready to blend without spending time in the microwave.
Today’s smoothie looked much more like I had expected–discernible cubes in the cup.
I rarely have to to make & drink hot coffee before my side hustle because I tend to sleep until the last possible minute. And coffee doesn’t cool enough on my short drive. It’s for everyone’s safety that I drink coffee, though, so this smoothie is perfect.
I used the other half of my canned coconut milk to blend with the frozen cup contents. It came out beautifully–but only after some microwave time to thaw the cup contents a bit.
It. Was. Delicious.
I could not taste the banana at all which was nice. I definitely could taste the cacao. The coffee tasted rich without being bitter. I definitely think either an almond milk or full-fat coconut milk is the way to go.
The sea salt should be congratulated for bringing out the cacao!
This will definitely be put into heavy rotation when I re-order smoothies for next time. It gave me the boost I look for from caffeine and carried me through my physically taxing day without me becoming ravenous by dinner time.
I would drink this every day!
