cinco de mayo + summer shake

by beeprint

this afternoon i am grateful:

  1. that the flagstaff city council voted unanimously to file an injunction against  HB 1070.
  2. that i got to see the beaming and strong 5th graders marching to city hall, demonstrating against HB 1070.
  3. that it’s 70 degrees outside.
  4. that i stumbled across the green kitchen stories site and found this amazing sounding coconut/coffee beverage. i might have to make some for our yard sale on saturday.

Coconut Coffee Shake
(makes 2 large glasses or 4 small)

3/4 cup coconut milk
3/4 cup rice milk
1 large banana
2 tbsp coconut flakes
1/2 cup hazelnuts or 2 tbsp nut butter
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp vanilla powder
8 ice cubes
1 – 2 shots espresso (depending on how strong you like it) or 2-3 tsp instant coffee

Mix all ingredients, except the espresso, in a blender for a couple of minutes (if you use instant coffee you should blend it as well). Pour the shake into the glasses. Pour the wished amount of espresso into each glass, stir a couple of times with a spoon. Serve immediately.
