Luckily for me, Anne and Charles sent Dave home with some of the quinoa chocolate cake which Dave began raving about as soon as I hopped in the car. Naturally, I couldn't wait to try it so as soon as I walked in the door I dug into it which immediately prompted my reaction of "Holy shit! This is so good!" while Dave nodded as if to say "Yeah, I told you!" Needless to say, I'll be needing the recipe.
This morning there was one piece of cake left, and seeing as I ate two of the three last night (don't judge), I figured I better leave it for Dave instead. I decided to try making something of my own that would be a good alternative, yet satisfy the elements of the cake. So, I made a smoothie! A chocolate-avocado-banana smoothie to be exact and it turned out great.
- 1 avocado
- 2 frozen bananas
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- I always used to have trouble with peeling frozen bananas. I've found the easiest way now is to leave the banana to thaw on the counter for a few minutes, and then using a paring knife to peel/scrape the skin away.
- It's best to pour your liquid in at the end when making smoothies for better blending.
