I don't know why I'm always eating chocolate shakes, but they're just so lovely! Here's the one I'm having tonight while Anne-Marie and I snuggle up and read "The Fellowship of the Rings". We're just about to meed the River's daughter, Goldberry and have an enchanting chat with Tom Bobadil (a good friend of the family's), lol. When Annie heard I had made a chocolate shake (I thought she wanted tea) she immediately went downstairs to make on too, armed with my simple instructions.
Here it is:
1 banana (preferably frozen)
about 6 or so ice-cubes
almond milk (tonight I used the almond "silt" at the bottom of the pitcher and added a wee bit more water)
1 big teaspoon of organic cocoa
1 big teaspoon of raw honey
Blend to creamy perfection. Top with raw cacao nibs or a dusting of powder.
This afternoon I made my Daddy some raw halva. He loves it and I like to make him the homemade stuff so he doesn't go out and buy the bad, sugared stuff. It's the most simple thing ever to make.
Just mix ground sesame seeds (use a coffee grinder, I did 3 batches in there), salt (just a little), about 1 TB. of flax oil or coconut oil and raw liquid honey till you get a pastey, lovely dough. Pat in a container that is oiled lightly with a raw oil. Refridgerate.
Now my LOTR book awaits us, so I'm off to visit Goldberry, chocolate shake in hand. Till tomorrow (hopefully! I'll try to be a better blogger. :0)
