Chocolate Dream

Chocolate DreamDid I tell you I love chocolate? Did I tell you I love quick, easy and simple?

Enter the world of the Chocolate Dream. Rich, sweet, creamy — this drink will satisfy any of your chocolate cravings, no matter how much of a chocoholic you may be. And what could be better than that? Well, it only takes a few minutes to make.

For the drink
1 Young coconut
1 to 2 tbsp raw cacao powder, to taste
1 to 2 ice cubes

Equipment needs
High speed blender

The How-To-Do-It
Crack open that young coconut and pour all the water into your blender. You might want to strain the water if your cracking is sloppy — no one likes to drink splinters!

Next, scrape out the meat of the coconut and clean off any of the hard wood bits that might have come off with the scrapings. I like to rinse the coconut meat under water to be sure I have removed all the little wood bits.

Toss all of the cleaned meat into the blender, along with the raw cacao powder and ice cubes, and blend on high-speed until all of the meat is broken down into heavenly bliss. Pour into your favorite glass and enjoy!

Take it further
Instead of using chocolate and ice cubes, this drink is also super yummy with frozen berries — toss in three or four strawberries and watch in amazement at the magic that comes out of your blender!

Notes
The ice cubes really help to cool down the drink and enhance the smoothness; more importantly, they help to keep the temperature of the drink down while you blend it up! I find that I blend mine on high-speed for about 30 to 45 seconds. This really makes it creamy.
