First Date Smoothie by Dan Churchill

• 1 Cup Vita Coco Coconutmulk
• 1 Banana
• 1 Cup Cold Brew Coffee
• 2 Medjool Dates
• ½ Tsp Cinnamon
• 2 Tbsp Cacao Nibs

1. Blend everything but the cacao nibs in a blender.
2. Top with cacao nibs and drink up!

1. My first tip is to do one thing in the morning that will set you up to feel accomplished for the day. I always start my day by making my bed, and it’s this one simple act that means I’ve done at least one productive thing over the course of the day, no matter what else happens!

2. I make time for at least 5 minutes of quiet mediation. This gives me the headspace to jump into my busy day and approach it with some calm and ease that is always helpful in my hectic and fun days over at Charley St.
