For months my mom has been bugging me to get my act together and make a website. She's also been bugging me to give her my recipe for a coffee shake. So I figured I'd make her happy and do both at the same time.
When my parents visited LA last fall I don't know what disappointed them more: the lack of internet at my home or that I didn't own a coffee-making apparatus. Both made for some not so pleasant mornings. By the time my mom came back in February I had fixed the internet issue, but still had no way to brew coffee. I did, however, have some leftover cold-brew coffee concentrate from a dessert I had made. I often make a protein shake in the morning, so naturally the coffee shake was born.
coffee shake (serves 1)
handful of cashews (1/8 - 1/4 cup)
3 pitted dates
1/2 scoop Sun Warrior Classic Chocolate Protein Powder
1/3 cup cold-brew coffee concentrate
1 cup almond milk
5-6 ice cubes
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
dash of cinnamon (optional)
Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender and enjoy.
