So, I almost never post recipes of shakes, since there are a million and I tend to stick to my regulars (as a side note, I’m a HUGE fan of the, dark leafy green mixed with chunks of watermelon and a chunk of ginger, you don’t need a liquid cause the watermelon is so water based).
But I tried this one this morning and it was SO good. I kept raving about it and finally my boyfriend was like, “Why don’t you blog about it.” Which I’m sure was meant sarcastically but whatever. I am totally blogging about this shit.
I got the recipe from “Eat Raw, Eat Well” by Douglas McNish. It sounded interesting, I had all the ingredients, and I needed some energy this morning. And, it was spectacular.
While I can’t say it tastes like bacon, I can say it tastes really fing good.
- 1 cup of hemp milk (3 tbls. hemp seed, 4 cups water and 2 dates — makes more than 1 cup)
- 1/2 an avocado
- 2 dates, pitted
- 2 tsp. agave
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
Blend in a Vitamix until creamy.
Um. Yum! Drink this smoothie. It’s great and will give you lots of energy.
