Can you believe it is September already? I’m so not ready for fall and I’m still summer dreaming. I have been craving thick and creamy chocolate nut mylk for the whole day. So here, I decided to do a little experiment since almond mylk is made from blending raw almonds and water together and then removing the pulp; so I decided to blend my homemade almond butter with coconut water…and the results? Thick and creamy, fulfilling chocolate mylk!
Raw Cacao is one of the richest sources of antioxidants and it is packed full of other nutrients. Coconut Water help replace lost electrolytes like sodium and potassium and it keeps you hydrated, whereas Almond Butter is also an ideal source of protein and it is crucial for tissue regeneration and repair, which is prefect for refuelling after your gym sesh!
Ingredients (makes 500ml)
4 Tbsp Almond Butter
400ml Coconut Water
2 Tbsp of Cacao Powder
1 Tbsp Honey/ Agave Nectar/ Rice Syrup (optional)
1. Blend almond butter, coconut water and cacao powder together for 5 minuets.
2. Have a taste of your mylk, it should be quite bitter because of the cacao, now sweeten it by adding in the honey or agave nectar to your liking.
3. Pour it in your glass, grab a straw and enjoy!
*If you have any leftovers, store it in a glass bottle and consume within 3 days. Remeber to give it a shake before drinking
Enjoy the rest of the week! Eat clean, train dirty and happy snacking!
