Chocolate Decadence

It's a coconutty-chocolatey take on the "best iced coffee" by Ginger, but I find that this recipe doesn't taste like that. I used to add lots of maca to get that "iced coffee" taste, but this one tastes much more chocolatey. Normally I make these creamy drinks with macadamia or cashews, but the other day I decided to use walnuts, and I'm so glad I did. There is a softeness in the flavour that I really enjoy, plus the nut itself is soft, blending easily into the drink. I blend everything together and then add ice at the end to make it frosty. This is more like the consistency of cream, rather than a thick smoothie. I add about 1 tablespoon each of the cacao and carob, and then just a bit of the other powders, and agave to taste.

1 young coconut
(water and pulp)
large handful walnuts or macadamia nuts
cacao powder
carob powder
agave
lucuma
mesquite
maca
vanilla
ice

Awesome Carmi - I know you'll like it - you can tailor it to your tastes. I like a bit more lucuma and less maca/mesquite. Also, I said about 1 tbs each of cacao/carob, but really it's a bit more cacao than carob. Ah well, you'll make it how you like Enjoy!

Oh Wow, girlie! This was sooooooo good! I didn't have ice cubes so I threw in some pecan ice cream cubes I had sitting in the freezer. Divine!!!

I'll have to start harassing the produce manager of the local grocery store to get young coconuts in.

Oh man, I'm so jealous!!! I want to enjoy your 'daily decadence' too!!!!!!

If I remember correctly, the Pecan ice cream was from CG's book. It didn't turn out so great I thought (a bit 'ice crystally' if you know what I mean, but that could be due to us not having a proper ice cream maker.)
