Summer Smoothie Series, #8: A Drink With A Date You Won’t Regret

I love sticky toffee pudding. Despite the fact it has zero chocolate, it’s pretty close to being the perfect dessert. You may recall a brief mention of this sweet treat in a previous post, but now I’ve taken it a step further and made it drinkable! Although it’s not as nearly as gooey or luscious, this drink tastes pretty close to the real thing.
