Chocolate Bliss

What I am about to tell you will revolutionize your entire life. πŸ™‚ Ok…well, maybe not. But pretty close. This is especially for those of you who are rockin’ the green smoothies…and need something to shake it up a bit. But it’s also for anyone who loves chocolate and wants a healthy alternative to their addiction. These make great popsicles for the kiddos too.

Chocolate Shake
Raw Food Real World
by Sarma Melngailis and Matthew Kenney

3 cups frozen bananas
2 cups almond milk (it’s amazing with FRESH almond milk, but any milk will work)
2T raw carob powder or cocoa powder (adjust to taste…cocoa tends to have a stronger flavor than carob)
1 t vanilla (non-alcohol)
1/4 cup agave nectar or 2 packets stevia
Pinch of sea salt
(For an extra kick, you can add a bit of cinnamon)

Put all ingredients into your blender.
Sit there for a moment while your world turns upside down.
Smile deliriously until someone walks by and asks what is wrong with you.
Share your chocolate bliss and make them happy too.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
