Using almonds and hazelnuts, I made a nutella inspired raw vegan chocolate nut milk that far exceeded my expectations and was quite a hit with everyone!
I confess, I am a food snob. This may not be a new confession, I think I may have owned up to this once before but I am once again openly confessing my little secret. Not only am I a food snob, I have also successfully turned the permanent members of my house, aka my husband and sisters to food snubs as well. One of the things my husband and I tend to turn our noses up to is store bought nut milks. Ever since I discovered that I can make my own nut milk that tastes ten times better than anything bought in the store, I have not bought any boxed or bottled nut milk products sold in grocery stores. I decided to push my snobbery a little further and attempt a nutella inspired vegan chocolate nut milk drink since once I realized how good homemade almond milk tasted, I figured a chocolate nut milk would taste even better. Let me tell you the story of how this raw vegan chocolate nut milk recipe was born.

Nigeria’s favorite mocktail, this chapman drink recipe unlike the traditional recipes out there, uses more natural alternatives but tastes just as good!
The first time I had a Chapman drink, I must have been about 10 years old, and it was at a place called Ikoyi Club in Lagos, Nigeria. Ikoyi club was somewhat of a country club back in the day, and it was the fun spot for me and my sisters to hang out and participate in a bunch of fun activities. Back then, we would always order food and drinks, and while we kids got to have the soda of our choice, my parents always ordered Chapman.
This pineapple ginger juice is a deliciously sweet, fresh, juice, and is packed with a major boost of nutrients that will rival any multivitamin supplement.
Hello my people. It was 80 degrees Fahrenheit (about 26 degrees Celsius) the other day, and my local farmer’s market just re-opened for the new season; all the signs of the seasons changing, and summer approaching. I am not quick to take of my jacket however. I still need protection from the cold spring early mornings and nights. Sometimes, it doesn’t even feel warm the whole day. So while I sometimes force the weather to agree with my feelings by wearing my summer dresses, I have found that I still need internal protection from the ever changing weather. My protection of choice is this immune boosting elevated pineapple ginger juice.
