Hey guyz! So it’s been awhile when it comes to posting a recipe. Going to get back into that mode and bring you some awesome and innovative recipes you have never experienced before!


So to get things started, the main inspiration behind this smoothie bowl came from when I first tried the Amazing Grass Chocolate Peanut butter smoothie packet when it came out a few months back. If you guyz haven’t tried it. You are missing out! Amazing Grass did a stellar job on this formula and it shows in how it tastes by itself in water or in a smoothie or smoothie bowl

For some reason, I just can’t get enough of smoothie bowls these days. There is just something about them that is oh so divine and satisfying about them. It seems once the warmer weather hits here in the midwest. There hasn’t been a day that hasn’t gone by that there isn’t a smoothie bowl included in my day!

While I adore smoothie’s, it’s been great switching things up from time to time. Plus, it’s like a healthier version of a frosty and soft servce ice cream! Can’t beat that!


After experimenting with various flavor combinations and unique ingredients. I think I have a winner on hand here. This smoothie bowl has everything you could ask for:


-Rich
-Sweet
-Decadent
-Nourishing
-Satisfying


So without further ado. Let’s get to the goodness!


Chocolate Peanut Butter Blitz Smoothie Bowl:


-2 to 3 frozen banana’s
-1 to 2 Tbsp peanut butter (I like Maranatha or Santa Cruz brands)

-1 tsp of Maca powder (I like Healthforce and Whole World Botanicals brands)

***Add everything to the blender. You will need to use the tamper stick if you have a Vitamin or Blendtec to get things going and blend since there is a lot less liquid involved***

Hope everyone is having a solid week so far! Got an interesting recipe for you and one that you can feel good about eating unlike other kinds of desserts making you feel subpar afterwards. This dessert could certainly act as a pre workout snack about an hour before exercise or hard training sessions as it contains a does of healthy fats, simple sugar from the dates and coconut nectar and protein from the nuts. It could also be a great bedtime snack for any folks trying to put on some weight or lean muscle mass.


So this recipe was inspired from the Thrive Energy Cook book by Brendan Brazier. A lot of the same elements are present in this recipe except for a few twists. You find out real soon what the differences are! Without further a do lets dive into this legit dessert!


Cashew Butter Cups

Crust:
-3 cups cashews
-1 cup pecans
-4 Tbsp cacao nibs
-6 Medjool pitted dates and soaked for roughly 10 to 15 minutes
-3 Tbsp of coconut nectar or yacon syrup


To make the crust, in a food processor or high powdered blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec. First combine the cashews and pecans. Process till the nuts are into small pieces. Next toss in the cacao nibs, soaked dates and coconut nectar or yacon syrup. Process and blend till it begins to form this dough like consistency. Once it has reached that stage. Press the dough into cupcake molds keeping in mind to leave enough room for the filling.


Filling:
-1/3 cup melted coconut oil
-1/3 cup cashew butter
-1/3 cup coconut nectar or yacon syrup
-1/4 cup coconut milk
-1 tsp vanilla extract


To make the filling, combine all ingredients into the blender and blend till desired consistency here. Feel free to add different superfoods like lucuma, goji, acai, maqui or maca. Once the dough and filling are made. Spoon the filling into the dough molds. Once done, place in the refrigerator for an hour or so. Once that that has been met. Bring it out of the refrigerator. Serve on a fancy plate and spoon some of that dank chocolate sauce and begin to slip into heaven for the next few minutes or more depending how many you have!


Chocolate Sauce:
-1 cup of raw cacao powder
-1/2 cup melted coconut oil
-1/2 tsp sea salt
-1/2 cup coconut nectar
-3 tbsp of filtered water


To make the chocolate sauce place everything into a blender until desired consistency and smoothness has been reached. I will warn you it’s very tempting to take spoonful of that chocolate sauce and go crazy! Only live once!
