Charcoal Hazelnut Latté



❊ G o o d  M o r n i n g  R e a d e r s ,

What are ya’ll up to this Sunday? I’ve got some jazzy beats playin’ and a lot of ideas runnin’ around my head. I started writing some new lyrics, as well as finally sharing this recipe. It’s usually mornings that do this to me. Ya know, when those creative juices are flowin’. I really could use this latte right about now to be honest, after all I have been sitting on sharing this recipe for over a week because I have been cycling through a lazy Leo spell. Leo’s, ya feel me?

My birthday was on the 31st, and it’s funny because I planned to be on top of a mountain (that I was planning on running up) and posing for that iconic ‘Jordan Year’ picture for my instagram account, but isn’t it funny how when you let go of planning little things and often big things, life takes the reigns and everything happens as it should? Naturally?

I think its important to be in control of your life, but I also think its important to recognize and find a happy medium of trusting intuition and being in the pilot’s seat.

My day of birth was really nice and relaxing. I literally hung out in our hammock all day long underneath the aspens, did some serious meditating, and then went to a lovely dinner at South Bend Bistro here in Sunriver, Oregon. This place had vibes. they have a lovely patio underneath the pine trees, with cute little Italian bistro lights and a wonderful array of locals and families on vacation. It was quite swanky, really. There was a nice alternative mix of jazz and that classic hipster acoustic crap. But you know, young Bendlandia couples eat that sh*t up.

No really I’m kidding, they were playing Bon Iver. I saw him at Sasquatch and he really is amazing. As well as most of the indie, hipster, woodsy acoustic crap. 🙂

 

&& NOW TO THE RECIPE!

 


This latté is not only flowing out of my mason jar, but it was DEEEELISH.   and quite pleasing on the digestive route of things. If you’re looking TO REALLY cleanse this morning, I highly suggest this combo.

Thought this looked like a galaxy/constellation thing or an abstract flower.

I tried to leave it on the counter cause it looked cool, but that didn’t sit well with my roommates…
