Can you believe it’s already mid-June? YIKES!  It can be so overwhelming when you feel you have so much to do and time is passing too quickly! Megan at Detoxinista wrote a great post earlier this week called Tuesday Things where she shed light on Jerry Seinfeld’s Productivity Secret. I believe I am going to incorporate this method. First, however, I must get intentional about my goals and really get some clarity. Therefore, I will be taking some time this weekend to meditate and get clear!

I will also be instructing my first Blissful Body ShapeUP class!! Oh yes, there are little fears that pop up like what if no one shows up, am I prepared enough. Bah Humbug! Fears like that will always be there-I believe fear is just a checks and balance system. I am right where I am suppose to be and everything will turn out exactly as it should-the universe totally supports me! Oh, and by the way, Blissful Pursuit, my health coaching website is up, check it out here and let me know what you think!

Other things I will be enjoying this weekend include a long bike ride, walks, and the usual to-do’s but I am really focusing on getting clear, putting up another business vision board, and fitting in some relaxation!! Of course, I will be enjoying great recipes too! Here is my latest spin on my original chocolate pudding recipe…I hope you enjoy!

Silky Mint Chocolate Pudding

1 3/4 c. almond milk (add more or less to your preferred consistency)
2 c. carrots (*steamed or boiled until soft)
1 T. almond butter
2 Medjool dates
1 T. carob powder
1 1/2 T. cacao powder (or cocoa)
4 scoops of Kal stevia (or to taste, or use your preferred sweetener, **honey, agave, maple syrup)
1 t. cacao nibs
1/2 t. peppermint extract
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. sea salt

  • Start by steaming or boiling carrots, I cover the carrots with water and boil for time, then drain all the water
  • Add all ingredients to a food processor or high-powered blender (I used my VitaMix) and pulse until smooth
  • **If you use a liquid sweetener, you may want to decrease the amount of almond milk
  • **I have also omitted the nut butter and dates and it’s still great…experiment :)

Isn’t it amazing that by adding the word silky to the title it makes the recipe seem even more delicious. Really, it is a delicious recipe, silky in the title or not! I have also been experimenting with using the pudding in little raw goodies…I have been told they are somewhere between chocolate mousse, ice cream, and cookie dough. Yes, I will have all of the above in one! :) I will let you know when I get the actual recipe and be sharing it soon!

Wishing you a wonderfully relaxing weekend?

Weekend plans? Have you ever done a bootcamp-style workout? Does the title of a recipe affect its appeal?
