Chocolate Coconut Water Love

Posted on

After teaching spin, doing a bit of a shoulder, workout, and calling my new boss so that I could find out details of my new job (I start next Tuesday!) it was time for lunch.

Sometimes, I feel like I could go through I head of lettuce in two days, other times it takes me a bit longer.  When I was home not too long ago, my mom gave me some artisan lettuce as a special treat.  While I have not been skimping on using the lettuce, somehow I still have it!  So, I cleaned it up, and made myself a delicious salad full of cauliflower, onion, broccoli, celery, and tuna topped with a combination of homemade hummus and salsa.

Lately, I have been absolutely loving the combination of salsa and hummus as a salad dressing.  It is slightly spicy, and the hummus adds a nice creaminess.  Delish!😉

New Obsession

When I went grocery shopping for the week, I purchased myself a little treat.  Zico Chocolate Coconut water.  I had tried the original coconut water and loved it, but heard rave reviews about the chocolate.  To be honest, I was a little nervous about trying it because I like the original so much, but as soon as I tried it I was in LOVE!

It is seriously delicious, and oddly tastes kind of like chocolate milk.  When I tried it on Saturday, I immediately got the urge to experiment with it…so I made a smoothie.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Coconut Water Smoothie

  • 1/2 cup Zico Chocolate Coconut Water
  • 1/3 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 handful of kale (spinach will work fine too, or you can omit!)
  • 1 Tbsp of natural peanut butter
  • 1 tsp raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 packet of splenda
  • 4 ice cubes
  • a splash of regular water (as needed)

Combine all ingredients in the blender and enjoy!!  Seriously, this is one delicious, sweet, nutritious treat🙂
