3 medjool dates
1 tablespoon wildcrafted cacao
1 tablespoon wildcrafted maca root
1 tablespoon raw power powder (green)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon organic vanilla flavoring (or beans from one vanilla pod)
6 ice cubes
Sweetener of choice (agave, yacon, honey)
1. Pit dates and place in a Vita-Mix.
2. Pour a heaping tablespoon of cacao powder over top, follow with a slightly more conservative tablespoon of David Wolfe's “Maca Power”, or simply use Maca Root. Then follow with a heaping tablespoon of raw power powder (the green kind)...I suppose you could substitute any hemp/protein power powder, but raw power gives it the signature coffee taste!
3. Sprinkle with cinnamon, add vanilla then put about 5 or 6 ice cubes, and cover with just enough water, maybe 10mm over top of ice.
4. Blend till chunky. Enjoy.
Nathan's ThoughtsBy nathan
A cold, chunky chocolate influenced energy elixer that has strong undertones of passion.
Best if this is made without coconut water as it gives it a “too sweet” taste that defeats its rich, spice heavy, ingredient list.
Albeit incredibly simple and easy to make, this will keep you moving all day long!
