Had the honor of photographing for TWO beautiful pieces in Taproot Magazine's latest issue -- WILD. The first was a big batch of summer smoothies with recipes by Sarah Brown Davidson. I photographed these smoothies on a houseboat! Getting away from your home for a photo shoot is such a good well being decision and then I was able to share and taste all of them at the end! The coconut chaga chai was my favorite, but really they're all so good. Find a copy of Wild at a stockist near you to try them for yourself!
Coconut Chaga Chai
Recipe by Sarah Brown Davidson
1 cup coconut milk
3 dates (pitted and soaked in water to ease the blending process)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon cardamom
1/8 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon chaga powder (this smoothie can certainly be made without the chaga)
Unsweetened shredded coconut for garnish
Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass, sprinkle with shredded coconut and enjoy!
