Smooth Move ChocoLove

 

I have been long time friends with the peeps over at Navitas- and one of my highlights to my frequent trips to California is hanging with Navitas cheerleader herself, Ms. Julie Morris.

When they asked me to help share the love on their Smoothment challenge, I knew straight away what I was going to put together for them- a replacement for the drink that ALWAYS makes people afraid to cleanses and detoxes- giving up their coffee.

Can you believe I was once a coffee drinker? Like a serious one. I brewed it at home. I would buy it on my way to class. All through university I was a coffee girl.

I can also tell you that I haven't had a cup of coffee since 2004. And I don't miss it. There are so many more awesome options.

This particular recipe, in honour of Navitas Smoothment is one of my staple standards. This can be made with half ice and half water as a chilly refresher, all ice for an ice cream or even use warm water and make it a full winter sipping coffee replacement.

If you are going to take on a smoothie challenge (which you should) it is guaranteed that smoothies will become a part of your everyday life. If that's the case, you might also want to start saving those pennies (or perhaps those fivers you'll save not buying fancy coffee drinks everyday) for a super awesome blender.

Here is your new morning favourite.

    Wow, this looks absolutely delicious and rich! I think I will have to try it! I would love to find something to replace my daily coffees (2) with!

    Oh my, that looks amazing! I too was a coffee addict through college and my 20's. In retrospect, I'm pretty sure it aided in my adrenal burnout (amongst other bad lifestyle choices). Thanks for sharing this recipe and for your devotion to healing humanity. This will be my breakfast tomorrow for sure!!!

    The ingredients of Dandy Blend showed barley and rye. So, I'm sad to see that it would not be gluten free, so I cannot use it. Do you have a tasty coffee alternative to suggest instead? Thanks

      They are actually extracts and so the product is 100% gluten-free. Have a look at their product info here:http://www.dandyblend.com/FAQ.asp#HOW%20CAN%20THERE%20BE%20NO%20GLUTEN%20WHEN%20IT%20CONTAINS%20BARLEY%20AND%20RYE?
