I am trying to figure out where this craving came from. Maybe the endless hours spent on Pinterest looking for the “perfect” mood board image did it, or maybe it was Instagram. Maybe it’s called stress, or sadness, or anxiety, or a little bit of all of those mixed into a sophisticated cocktail called adulthood.

I tried to ignore the persistent hum, whispering in my ear. But my efforts were futile; an ice cold, sweet milkshake was calling my name. Weeks passed and it was still lingering, strong and tireless, not willing to let its grip go, taunting me with the memory of milk and ice cream whipped into sweet, sweet perfection. I had to give in.

And so I find myself sipping the most decadent of milkshakes in the middle of April, for the first time in twenty years. Spirit lifting, energy boosting, delicious goodness, mixed to perfection within seconds.

Unlike a sugary-sweet milkshakes, this one is a nutritional powerhouse! Made out of all the ingredients I’m currently obsessed with (coconut milk, dates, and hemp seeds) this milkshake is the delicious cure to all end-of-winter, it’s-not-spring-yet gloom.
