Green Drinks RULE!
While playing around in the kitchen this summer I discovered what might be the yummiest (and healthiest) green drink I have made yet!
It’s a heavenly alkalizing green coconut milk shake. Full of protein, good fats, minerals and delicious, rich, creamy, icy flavor — this is a filling yet cleansing breakfast treat in the summer!
And best yet, for those not ready for pure green juice without the fruit (which can be sugary), this is a great way to get your greens while still satisfying the craving for a sweet and creamy indulgence. I would have this for dessert it’s so delicious!
1 1/2 Cup Pure Fresh Green Juice with no fruit. Check out the first part of this blog entry to get ideas.
1 1/2 Cup Raw Nut Milk (can be almond, brazil nut, pine nut, macadamia or a combo!) Check out the second part of this blog to learn how to make nut milk. Until you get a nut milk bag for straining, a panty hose knee sock will do the trick!
2 Tbsp organic hemp seeds (Nutiva is a great brand)
1 handful of organic spinach
1 heaping Tbsp Coconut Manna/coconut butter
1 tsp cinnamon to taste and for garnish
½ tsp himalayan sea salt (Real Salt is a great brand)
6-8 ice cubes (or freeze coconut water or coconut milk into ice cube trays for an even creamier/sweeter taste and tecture)
Dash of raw green stevia powder
Blend everything in a Vitamix or Blendtec for best results, however a regular blender may work fine too. I promise, you’ll sigh a satisfied, “ahh” after every succulent slushy slurp!
