MAKE } Iced Coffee Smoothie

Washington, DC is experiencing a renaissance of small-batch food producers, and one of my favorite products to launch recently is Growl Iced Coffee Concentrate, created by Matthew Snyder.  We stock it at Salt & Sundry, and you can now order it from our online shop (which finally launched!).

Thanks to the cold brew method, Growl is never heated, resulting in less acidity and a smooth, nutty flavor. It makes the most delicious iced coffee — simply pour over ice and add equal parts water or milk.

But that's not all you can do with it. 

My always-inspiring friend Alicia Sokol (I mean, really, I would be happy if she fed me daily) has come up with an incredible smoothie recipe using Growl. You get your caffeine kick with a whole lot of other healthy goodness like bananas and almond butter. Now that's a way to start the day.
