In a quest to continue with this clean eating,
I have decided to not drink as much real coffee.
I will still treat myself every now and then,
and you know I can't give up my
Wednesday morning Starbuck's dates
with my boy.
Just taking the coffee intake down a notch.
I found this recipe for fake coffee
and sort of twisted it to make it
my own perfect morning treat.
So, Here is what you will need:
Chicory Root based Instant Coffee Substitute
While your water is boiling,
place 4 prunes and 2 round tsps of coffee substitute
in a heat proof bowl.
Then add 1 cup of boiling water to the bowl and let steep
for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a blender
add 2 tbsps of almond butter, and 1 cup of almond milk.
Slice up a banana and add that to the mix as well.
After the prunes are done soaking,
add the entire contents of the bowl to the blender.
Blend until smooth and then add as much ice as you would like.
I make mine the consistency of a frappuccino.
Enjoy your healthy morning pick me up!
