HOT CACAO PROTEIN DRINK (Vegan + Gluten- Free)

HELLO my  W O N D E R F U L  loyal readers! I hope your New year was great- mine sure was. I ended up spending the whole holiday season with just my hubby - and it was GREAT! We relaxed and ate, played games and watched tons of movies.  It was a BLAST!

So now I am embracing 2018!!! I am very happy to get back to the "basics" in a way. Do you know what I mean? I mean newly awakened sense of direction, purpose and drive (including those goals we had for 2017 that somehow fell of the bandwagon......anyone hear me on this one?!)

With that, I am sharing my newly created HOT CACAO HEMP protein drink! (It's like a healthy form of Hot Cocoa- and who doesn't love that?!)

It's full of

CONTAINS 15g of Protein!

HOT CACAO HEMP W/ CINNAMON PROTEIN DRINK

 

1-2 Pitted Dates (I prefer 1.5 dates)

3 TBS Raw Hemp Seeds

1 TBS CACAO Powder (feel free to also sub cocoa)

2 Tsp Coconut Butter/Manna or Oil

1 TBS Almond Butter

1/8 Tsp Cinnamon (ground)

16oz Boiling Hot Water

First, add 3 cups of water to a small pot to bring to a boil.

Second, add the dates, hemp seeds, cacao powder, coconut butter/oil, almond butter, and cinnamon into a high-powdered blender (such as a Vitamix).

Lastly, when the water is boiling, as you pour into the vitamix, pour until it hits the 16oz (2 cups) line. Blend on high for about 45 seconds. Pour out into a glass/thermas/big cup.

BE CAREFUL as it'll be very HOT. Enjoy!!!
