HGTV & Chocolate Almond Smoothie

January 12, 2012

Been thinking about abroad travel. DH has never been out of the US – no, a five minute walk across the Mexican border to have lunch doesn’t count!

Particularly been thinking about warm, tropical, ocean, beach places. Problem – watching House Hunters International on HGTV, a couple bought a property in the Dominican Republic that looked wonderful… until they showed the tarantulas & also mentioned scorpions.

I may start thinking about someplace farther north where arthropods don’t live…

Almond Butter

Chocolate Almond Smoothie

Quick meals, healthy snacks – it’s hard to say “No” to a smoothie! This one is non-dairy!


  • 1/4 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 1 Tablespoon (preferably raw) Almond Butter
  • 1/2 cup Ice
  • 1 Tablespoon Cocao
  • 1 Tablespoon Cacao Nibs (optional)


  1. Pour all ingredient’s in a blender.
  2. Pulse until everything is well mixed & smooth.

Note: You may need to add just a touch of water to help this along, but not more than a Tablespoon or so or it will dilute the flavor.
