“INSPIRED BY ALCHEMY” CHOCOLATE MACA MYLKSHAKE

This creamy & dreamy chocolate maca “mylkshake” was inspired by a smoothie we had at the amazing vegan restaurant Alchemy in Ubud.

The list of ingredients for their decadent delight included cashews, coconut, cacao, papaya, maca & coconut sugar.

This is my spin on it and it’s a keeper folks.  My son said it was one of his all-time favs — and that means A LOT given how many smoothies my chicklets have had over the years!  He described it as tasting like a chocolate caramel sundae. Works for me. Especially when it happens to be packed with vitamins & minerals + antioxidants + fiber + healthy fats + protein + probiotics+ my favourite adaptogen, too!

So my advice?!?  Give this recipe a go.  And — if you’re like me — maybe daydream a little about Bali while you’re at it...
