The Best Ever Raw Chocolate Mylk

This one is a favorite staple of mine simply because every little sip is absolutely mouth-watering. I love thinking about how much nutrition is in just even half a cup of this - it's off the charts! If you've ever thought about living on cacao smoothies for a few days or even weeks at a time, you certainly could it with this one as part of the program.

Raw Chocolate Mylk

2 T raw cacao powder*
1 cup raw cashews*
6 dates*
1 tsp virgin coconut oil*
1/2-1 cup frozen blueberries or blackberries*
1/4 agave (or to taste)*
3-4 cups purified water, coconut water, or homemade nut mylk (I love Brazil nut mylk)*
1 T Vitamineral Green or ReVitaPhi*
2 tsp MacaForce - Vanilla Spice or Carob Peppermint (or plain raw maca powder)*
1 spoonful Truly Vitamin C (Acerola cherry powder)*
1 T Synergy Superfood Blend (or just 2 T of VMG or ReVitaPhi)
2 tsp MSM powder
2 T cacao nibs
1 T pine nuts
2 tsp chia seeds
2 tsp hemp seeds
1 tsp bee pollen
1/4 tsp (pink) Himalayan Crystal salt

To Prepare: Blend WELL. I add the liquid in first, then powders, Superfoods, and cashews and start blending on high speed (the Vita-Mix rocks). Once the nuts are blended well, I add in the frozen berries and continue until it is a thin, drinkable consistency with the chunky bits all broken up.

Although I typically cut the recipe in half, the above makes about 2 quart full-size mason jars. You can store it in the fridge if for some crazy reason you can't find someone to share it with. If you do not have every single ingredient, don't stress.. make it anyway and just leave out what you don't have. Every once in a while I add a banana to it, just because it adds to the creaminess factor. I put a '*' next to the ingredients that are crucial in making it turn into Raw Mylk Madness. But, with that said, know that the full experience comes when you include the full dozen Superfoods. You WILL feel the extra bliss! Besides Elements for Life, I get the highest-quality Superfoods through Sunfood Nutrition (David Wolfe's company), Raw Vegan Source (just outside of Seattle), and HealthForce Nutritionals (the work of Jameth Sheridan). You can link to them directly from the links to your right.

I've given this drink to people who have never even heard the word Superfood before, as well as conventional MDs, Pharmacists & their techs, and closed-minded people who are resistant to anything 'raw'.. and this BLOWS THEIR MIND! I am regularly asked to make them a batch, bring it to them (soon!) in a convenient mason jar, and they'll pay me good money for it! Just try it at home.. you'll see what everyone is raving about!
