Dessert, Anyone?

This weekend was beautiful. I took today off work so I could enjoy a three-day weekend before school starts. I'll be taking two classes, one on weekends and the other on Monday nights. My professor already assigned quite a bit due next weekend, so I've been focusing on school work today. I'd rather finish reading The Minimalists: Essential Essays by Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, but maybe I'll get to that later tonight! I think my cat was trying to tell me something too...!

Besides reading, I accomplished quite a few other tasks today. I did some laundry, cleaned up, cooked chickpeas I had soaking overnight, made cold-brewed coffee, and I also made fresh almond milk from raw, sprouted almonds I had soaking overnight. I saved the almond pulp and I was determined to use it this time! Using a food processor, I mixed together some of the almond pulp with a few pitted dates, cacao powder, maca powder, peanut butter, and maple syrup for a sweet treat. I rolled the mix into bite-sized pieces and covered each with shredded coconut. I tried one (yum!) and the rest are chilling in the fridge for later. Okay, back to reading. Happy Monday!
