Calm Before the Storm

13 Jan

Right before it is time to go back to school is that mix between relaxation, boredom, and a scramble to get all the things done that were on your list to do before next semester. Today was surprisingly on the relaxing side. It rained all day making the perfect opportunity to do some [Pinterest] crafts (that were on my list to do), finish up my one book I read over break (i am not but i know I AM, by Louie Giglio), and making a homemade almond spice latte (:

Pinterest inspired (:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Almond Spice Latte

Makes one large mug full

  • 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ground nutmeg to taste
  • 1/4-1/2 cup strongly brewed almond roasted coffee (regular coffee will do)
  • 2-3 drops of almond extract
  • light agave nectar (to taste)

Heat over medium heat in saucepan, or warm in microwave, stirring to combine.

Goes great with some raw apple crisp or even raw chocolate-coconut pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Raw Chocolate-Coconut Pudding with Pomegranate

  • 2-3 scoops dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla
  • handful of shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 4-6 dates (depending on desired sweetness)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional-I just like adding cinnamon to everything 🙂
  • pomegranate seeds to top

Combine in vitamix or food processor and enjoy!
