Minty Chocolate Bites

Today’s post will be short and sweet. My reason for brevity is two-fold:

1. I’ve got a couple of longer posts coming up.
2. I’m about to head out for a surf and the tide waits for no one.

Go make these. You’ll be happy.

Minty Chocolate Bites

2 c. unsweetened coconut flakes
3/4 c. almond meal (I didn’t use almond flour but I bet it would work just the same)
10-15 medjool dates (depending on how dry/moist they are)
1/4 – 1/3 c. cocoa powder (I used some delicious Valrohna cocoa powder, but you could use raw cacao or just your box o’ Hershey’s in the pantry)
1 tsp. peppermint oil (from trader joes… any peppermint extract will do)
dash of sea salt

  1. In a food processor, add almond meal and coconut. Process until sandy in texture.
  2. Add dates, cocoa, salt and peppermint.
  3. Process until sticky.
  4. Roll into balls or press into a pan to cut into bars.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
