The cold of London is forgotten in the glow of a lighter,
It is all you do to kill the grey,
Numb at the tips and you flick it right up,
And a dead man they say,
as you get High another day,
Just a drag to a smile, its chocolate.

Just a dab you use it,
Get high to get calm,
Paranoia but you do it,
Sweet lies its all like chocolate

You and your friends call it chocolate,
The lyrics of the song called it fate,
Roll up and strum the strings, chocolate to forget,
Dead inside and sad soaked futile hate,
You bite her lips, taste like wine and chocolate,
You call it chocolate, just a lie; you dead?

Your lungs they take it in like a friend,
Your heart breaks again, remember why you like it?
She broke your heart so you broke your head,
Bent with drags of chocolate, loved her but she didn’t know,
Bite your lips, light it up and inhale your fate

Inspired by the 1975 chocolate and my own addiction and self destruction

Smoothie time! There’s something about summer that just makes me want a smoothie all the time! I usually shy away from banana based smoothies because it has such a strong flavor but in this collection I embraced the creaminess and worked it in with other great fruits, especially pineapple and orange, to work with the banana instead of trying to mask it. Everything except the Mango Muscles (which has whey protein powder) is vegan and even though only the Macha Magic has spinach you can add in your greens to any one of these recipes!

Bonus tip- the ultimate way to have ready to go frozen bananas:

Frozen bananas are the key to creamy smoothies but peeling a frozen banana is a tedious, painful experience. Instead what I like to do is peel and cut a few bananas in half and store them in Tupperware in the freezer. Then whenever I need them they’re peeled and in single portions ready to go!
