cc3 Introducing The Chocolate Cashew Coffee! This beautiful plant based, sugar free, and dairy free idea stemmed from a friend of mine Sara, from (@shisodelicious)! This beautiful woman is genuinely one of the most amazing friends, and people in this "foodie" world I live in! She has always got something creative and stunning up her sleeve, but the best part.. she is never afraid to share, and teach her techniques.  This is something that attracts me most about Sara.  She is like my own little mentor, and always helping me to learn more about food, their flavours and even remedies to help me deal with my random tummy issues.

I will use Beet Powder, and that is it.  So basically I am doing this post on behalf of my boyfriend today, who does use Proteins post gym and before bed.  He is very particular to which product he will use, so that is why I think it is super important that I share with all of you this amazing product, that is Vegan, Cruelty, and according to him, pretty damn delicious.
