Today was one sizzling hot day here in Northern California. I've been doing pretty well at keeping sugar cravings at bay with lots of protein, healthy fats, and carbs (some in starch form because I'm breastfeeding). But maybe because I was still melting past dinner time and my sweet tooth cravings seem to usually appear at night, I all of a sudden had the urge to make a cold treat before bed. The following is my modification of 21DSD Chocolate Mousse. Clean and quick smoothie recipe that satisfies every time.
- 1 tablespoon coconut butter diluted with 1/2 cup calming warm tea to make herbal infused coconut milk
- 3 - 4 ice cubes
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 teaspoon unsweetened Cocoa powder (I had only baking variety available and don't have much of a craving for chocolate, but feel free to add more)
- 1/2 green banana
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Serve immediately for the freshest and yummiest bedtime treat. Enjoy!
