This one’s a winner you guys! Cocoa, dates and tahini blended up with creamy coconut milk, vanilla and ice! What could be better? It’s my take on the typical peanut butter and chocolate combo. The tahini is really fun for a change but still provides that nutty, rich quality that is so satisfying. And it’s a perfect treat for those warm days that are right around the corner…fingers crossed.

I hope your week is going well. XO
