Happy Monday, friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July. We celebrated with a few friends and great homemade foccacia–love that basil season is finally here!
We were definitely moving a little slower on Sunday morning, so I decided to add a little kick to my favorite indulgent tasting snack smoothie with some coffee concentrate I already had in the fridge. I actually had tried to make just regular iced coffee but put way too many coffee grounds in–the first sip about did me in!
But once I realized what I’d done, I actually loved it. I’ve been mixing about 1/4 cup of the coffee with a cup or so of vanilla almond milk every morning, and it is so good!
So, I figured that coffee + cacao powder + almond butter in a smoothie couldn’t really turn out badly. And it made this smoothie taste like such a treat, too!
