Blended Mexican Mocha (dairy-free) + a Fair Trade giveaway

It’s a great day for a giveaway :)

Fair trade giveaway

Hi friends! How’s your Monday going?? Hope you’re having a wonderful day. <3

I’ve been looking forward to today’s post because I’m always excited to spread the word about Fair Trade Month and share some awesome goodies with a lucky winner.

But first, how about a recipe??

Here’s a blended Mexican Mocha I whipped up, using 3 popular Fair Trade ingredients: chocolate, coffee, and cinnamon.

Fair trade ingredients

(The drinking chocolate is out of control amazing.)

First, I made a 10-oz batch of Pura Vida coffee, and mixed in some drinking chocolate (which is like chocolate chips and melts beautifully into coffee or warmed milk for a hot chocolate), and added vanilla, cinnamon and a splash of sea salt. After cooling to room temperature, I placed it in the fridge to chill. After it was pretty cold, I added almond milk, ice cubes, and a kick of sweetness before blending it up. The Pilot was happy to be my taste tester.

Hi friends! Happy almost-Friday! Don’t forget that tomorrow is the last chance to get your lotus tank. All the info is HERE.

Flourless pumpkin chocolate chip bars

Let the avalanche of all things pumpkin begin.   I feel like this year, a lot of people are playing it cool when it comes to pumpkin. You know, trying not to act *too* excited about its arrival. (Also it could totally be the fact that many of us are still experiencing true summer weather.) […]

Overnight apple pie slow cooker oatmeal

Hi friends! How’s the day going?? A little later blogging today, as technology doesn’t seem to be my friend this week. First the blog server takes a faceplant, and then my internets decide to disappear.

Avocado chocolate mousse pie

Bountiful avocados: reason 28374 why it’s nice to live in California. I remember when we brought Liv to Disneyland when she was an itty thing, and I ordered an omelet with avocado. The omelet had HALF an avocado on top. Coming from Tucson, where extra ‘cado is at least $5 and you get 3 measly […]

Hi friends. What a day over here. Everyone talks about the 2s being rough, and I hate to scare anyone, but the 3s are the real deal. (My mom also said to watch out for the 4s haha.) While there is way more *good* than tough over here, not every day is rainbows and acai […]
