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.

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.
