Chocolate Pudding Smoothie

I am building a new business…  Preparing marketing materials, strategizing on fliers, business cards, how to best use social media…  Planning opportunities to network in person and connect with people in my community.  But, I am shy, so while I tread into new territory, and step out of my comfort zone to make new connections I am also seeking comfort.

I find comfort in the kitchen.  It is peaceful, welcoming and holds space for me to experiment in the embrace of my own home.  My kitchen says “Let’s play.  Forget everything else and open up.”  My kitchen is a great friend.

I find comfort in this smoothie.  Chocolate Pudding Smoothie sweeps me off my feet, says “sit down with me sweetie” wraps its arms around me and holds me gently, saying “everything is going to be all right”.  It is thick, chocolate-y, indulgent and full of raw food goodness.  I could run away with this smoothie!

What comforts you during these cold winter days?

Chocolate Pudding Smoothie

1.5 c almond milk
1 handful fresh swiss chard, chopped
1/4 ripe avocado
1 T agave
2 T raw cacao powder
1 t vanilla

Pack chopped swiss chard in the bottom of a blender and then fill with almond milk to the 1 cup line on the blender.  Blend starting on a low setting and increasing to the highest setting until the greens are well blended.

Next turn off blender, add the rest of the ingredients and blend again starting on a low setting and working up to a higher setting.

Pour into a pretty drinking glass and enjoy this thick, creamy chocolate treat!
