This is adapted from the “I Am Luscious” recipe in I Am Grateful: Recipes and Lifestyles of Cafe Gratitude.” I highly recommend this fabulous book!
Every recipe I’ve tried so far has been delicious.
I used to cap the amount of cacao powder in my smoothies and nut mylks at 1.5 tablespoons, but for that pure cacao flavor, I’ve learned you need at least 2 tablespoons.
Add more nuts, or another fig, if you want to thicken it up.
Why not splurge? You only live once!
