Chocolate-Maca Tonic

Tomorrow is my birthday so to celebrate I decided to share with you all one of my favorite superfood tonics! This drink was inspired by a drink I had in Maui a few years ago.  After recreating it at home it soon became something that I drank every day.

Raw Zucchini with Avocado Basil Sauce

I have always heard of pesto, i mean from the restarurnt's menu, but i have never tried it. Funny, huh?:P After searching for some recipes, I found it was pretty easy to make.
