Frugal Foodie Friday: Do you ever associate things in your head that may or may not actually be related? I really have no idea what a classic "Mexican chocolate" type of recipe would entail, but when I think of cinnamon, almonds, and chocolate the label just fits. If your version of a Thick Mexican Chocolate Smoothie needs a kick, I suggest a little ginger (fresh, powdered, or crystalized), rather than cayenne, to keep with the sweet smoothie theme.
Since I make this beverage so thick, you could call it a shake. But for me, if it is virtuous enough to consume for breakfast, it gets a smoothie title. Shakes are dessert in that rule-oriented brain of mine. Regardless of how you classify it, this nutritious beverage will leave you looking forward to breakfast!
