Here is another addition to "Things I made in My new Vitamix"
I have been making these ice coffees since trying to recreate a combination of my two favourite drinks that I buy from shops around my house. One is a chocolate protein smoothie, the other a spiced milk. The result is this super creamy, sweet drink with a mean coffee kick!
So the recipe starts with this recipe for home made almond milk.
Spiced almond milk, ice coffee
1 litre home made almond milk, see recipe above
3 Tablespoons instant coffee granules
6 pitted mejool dates
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
2 Tablespoons maca powder (optional)
2 teaspoons cinammon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
Place all ingredients in your extreme blender (aka vitamix) and blend until super smooth with no lumps. Chill and serve over ice.
If you feel like adding some protein, a scoop of chocolate rice protein would work a treat!
I have also tried adding avocado and it make it super rich and smooth!
How good do my succulents look? They were all dormant for about 4 months and now the sun has come out for a day or two and they have just shot up! So excited for the summer!
Have an awesome week! xxx
