On struggle and light

This is what I'll live by today. The world is not a fair place. It doesn't matter. I will just be the light and the love that I am and not let myself be dragged into struggle and earthly ego. 

And maybe cry a little. For I am human, after all, and it's been a tough few weeks. Kahlil Gibran says: Pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

Yummy scrummy vegan iced coconut mocha

Oh my word. This is one of the best things ever!!

It is creamy and coffee-ish and coconuttish cold and delishous!


One frozen banana
3 small or two big medjoel dates, pitted 
Heaped tablespoon of cashew paste*
Tablespoon of barleycup or other grain coffee
Rice milk, about 200-250 mils. (or any other vegan milk. Or regular organic milk if you don't want it vegan)
2 tablespoons coconut cream (the stuff in a tin without additives)**

Throw in a container, blend, and done is your treat! Excellent for breakfast as contains fibres, minerals, proteins. It'll keep you going a long while. 
It would also make a real nice snack. It does have about 300 calories so it's not the lightest drink, it's really filling. 

Enjoy! Enjoy! Happy food!

*if you are lucky enough to have a vitamix you can of course use raw cashews. I am not that fortunate (yet ;)) so I use paste to make sure it all comes out smooth and creamy!

**you can buy many types. And a lot of it has many non-coconutty things in. For this reason I buy a tin of organic coconut cream, making sure there are no extra ingredients. It's not very expensive and keeps in the fridge for a while.
