Even if you can’t catch a wave like Laird Hamilton, you can still eat like him. This satisfying smoothie features a nut base from almond butter and almond milk, along with a pour of raw, organic, and cold-pressed cacao creamer. It not only adds a little chocolate flavor, but also delivers antioxidants with each spoonful, too! Oh, and did we mention it’s warm? Instead of blending with ice, we heat this drink on the stove for a comforting bowl of goodness you can enjoy on chilly mornings.
