Serves: 2 servings
  • 10 brazil nuts
  • 6 dried figs, soaked for 2 hours
  • ½ cup cold brewed coffee
  • 4 medjool dates, pitted (add more for sweeter)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons raw cacao powder, more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • a pinch of sea salt
  1. Blend brazil nuts with 1 cup filtered water on high in a power blender for about 15 seconds or until smooth.
  2. Add in soaked figs, dates and a pinch of salt and blend on high again until smooth. Be careful not to blend too long or the friction from the blender will create heat.
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients. Try to pour the coffee along the edges of the blender to get some of the residue stuck on the walls of the blender to fall down. Add in a 4-5 ice cubs and blend again until everything is fully incorporated.
To soak figs, just place them in a bowl and cover with filtered water. Let soak for 2 hours then drain and discard water.
To make your own cold-brewed coffee (a much cheaper alternative!), coarsely grind coffee beans. In a bowl or jar combine about 1 cup coarsely ground coffee beans and 4 cups cold, filtered water. Cover and let sit overnight for 12 hours. Filter with a strainer or cheesecloth and voila! You can store it in a glass container in your fridge for a week.
