ABOUT THE CHEF

Brandi is the creator of the blog The Vegan 8. She has been a passionate cook for years, but it was her husband’s painful disease with gout that led her to choose a vegan lifestyle. She chose a healthier way of eating for her family that ignited a passion to create unique and delicious recipes that also happen to be vegan, gluten-free and oil-free. Her blog has become very popular, as it focuses on 8 ingredients or less, so anybody can make them with ease. Brandi believes in using nature’s powerful whole foods to nourish and promote a healthier body and a healthier mind. She enjoys creating food that everybody loves, whether vegan or not. Brandi’s belief is that food can be easy, use minimal ingredients, yet still be shockingly delicious.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with this incredibly delicious and healthy Cocoa-Nut Cherry Protein Dessert Shake that combines dark cherries with coconut milk and other flavorful ingredients, and then adds in Epic Protein : Chocolate Maca for an extra boost of nutrition and protein. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups frozen dark cherries (frozen is important, so there is no need for ice which would dilute the flavor)
  • 1 cup lowfat coconut milk (I used canned, but you can use fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (or agave)
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut butter or almond butter (I used coconut butter for a coconut taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1 scoop Epic Protein : Chocolate Maca
DIRECTIONS
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Garnish with coconut cream, shredded coconut and shaved dark chocolate, if desired.
