This post is part of a Foodbuzz Tastemaker program with Godiva Coffee.
Before I got pregnant with Kara, I never drank coffee. I have always loved the smell but yuck - never liked the taste. Towards the middle or end of the pregnancy, I had a craving for coffee. It was so weird! I had some decaf watered down with milk.
After Kara was born and I started getting back into the early morning workout routine, there were days where I just NEEDED something and had a taste for coffee. I remember one morning, I was probably up in the middle of the night with Kara and I drank 1/2 a cup of coffee and went swimming, and whoa!! I was flying. I was leading the lane and felt awesome!! After that I realized the effect it can have on your workouts so here and there I'll drink it when I need a boost. Lately I've just been more tired and getting by on about 6 hours of sleep and drink it about 2 times a week. I was lucky enough to be selected to try some Godiva, complimentary from Food Buzz to review on my site.
I was mailed 2 flavors - chocolate truffle and hazelnut creme. The picture on the chocolate truffle makes you want to eat the bag - it's a spoon with chocolate mousse on it. MMM. It has a great taste with the subtle taste of chocolate. I have not discovered a love for plain coffee just yet and like the different flavors. It smells delectable and my only request would be to be able to get the beans instead of ground coffee.
It being summer, and HOT HOT HOT during these heatwaves, I decided to make a Chocolate Truffle iced coffee after coming home from a long bike ride last week.
CHOCOLATE TRUFFLE ICED COFFEE
8 oz Godiva Chocolate Truffle Coffee
4 oz almond or your choice of milk
about 15 ice cubes
1 tsp guar gum (optional - makes it creamy)
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend away!
Very refreshing and delicious!
