A Strawberry Chocola-tea Latte for Your Valentine

A Strawberry Chocola-tea Latte for Your Valentine

 

Whether you love or hate Valentine’s Day (or it varies from year to year), one thing you probably agree with me on is that this holiday dependably brings one very good thing—an abundance of chocolate-covered strawberries. If you love chocolate, you know what I mean.

 

On a recent chocolate strawberry-eating marathon (okay, I didn’t eat that many), I wondered why my daily morning celery juice didn’t taste this good. A girl can only dream. But, it got me thinking: could I make a breakfast drink that reminded me of chocolate-covered strawberries? That’s what this blog post is about—and it’s really good. As an aside, you’ll be relieved to know that it doesn’t contain any celery juice (though people have turned cauliflower into pizza, I wasn’t going to attempt a culinary magic trick of this scale), but as you’ll see, there’s nothing to feel bad about when you drink this. In fact, it’s loaded with antioxidants, polyphenols, and bone-building minerals. Let’s get started!

 

 

You will need:

2 tsp. Dark Chocolate Puehr

2 cups Water

1 cup Macadamias, pre-soaked

1 Nut Milk Bag or Strainer

3 Medjool Dates

3 Strawberries, ripe

 

Heat the water in a kettle until hot enough to steep the tea. Then steep the Puehr for 3 minutes, and strain. Add this to a blender with macadamias and blend until smooth. It will be somewhat grainy, so pour this through your strainer or nut milk bag (you can leave it as-is if you want to keep all that fiber and don’t mind the grainy texture).

 

Add it back into your blender with the pitted dates and strawberries, and blend until smooth. If you’d like it hot, a longer blend on a high speed setting should do the trick.

 

Pour into your favorite mug, sprinkle with cacao nibs, and voila! Delicious!

5 Reasons To Try Butterfly Blue Pea Flower Tea

Did you know that there are very few true blue things in nature that are edible? Most blue foods are actually varying shades of purple. But the amazing butterfly flowers make a tea that is literally, really, truly, blue. The blue color comes from a special type of bioflavonoid pigment that is not only an outrageously blue color, it actually has health benefits as well. These bioflavonoid pigments support your health in three important ways: they are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic.
