Today has been lovely and filled with chocolatey goodness. 

Breakfast was a chocolate covered strawberry smoothie, courtesy Amazing Grass Chocolate Green Super Food.  It was the perfect way to start my morning and sooo simple.  I used two scoops of the super food powder and blenderized it with 3/4 cup of frozen strawberries and 1 cup of rice milk.  The result was a rich chocolate filled delight.

When I got home from work tonight I was feeling inspired by my chocolate breakfast, so I went about making mini chocolate cupcakes with a semi-sweet chocolate ganche frosting.  Holy vegan decadence!!!  These little guys pack a cocoa filled wallop. 

I found the recipe on Cake Maker to The Stars recipe page and had to try it.  The only thing I changed is that I added a teaspoon of cinnamon to the dry ingredients.  If you have a love of chocolate, give this recipe a try.

It is now five days into my veganization and I am loving it!  I have even found a new favorite breakfast and yes, it does involve spinach.   I am completely in love with green smoothies.  I have concocted my own special blend that may end up taking the place of coffee as my reason for waking up in the morning. 

Good Morning Green Smoothie

1 Mango (cubed)

1/2 of  a frozen Banana

1 Orange (juiced)

2/3 cup of spinach or kale

1 tsp. Ground flax

1/3 cup Water

Put it all in the blender and liquefy!  Add more water if you like your smoothies to be a bit thinner.  I don’t add any sweetener when I whip this smoothie up but you could always add a bit of agave nectar if you  like.

In other exciting news, my order from Amazing Grass came today.  I got their Chocolate Green Super Food powder along with some free samples of Wheat Grass Drink Powder, Original Green Super Food and Goji-Acai Green Super Food.  I am looking forward to trying out the Chocolate Green Super Food in the morning and I’m thinking a stawberry-chocolate smoothie may be on the menu.
