Vegan Breakfast Shake

I actually made something I found on pinterest. That almost never happens. This raw vegan shake is from Rocki’s Rock’n Blog.

It looks like dessert and taste like dessert but let’s call it breakfast. I think I’ll be making this all until my blender gives out. That or I die of brain freeze.

Here are the directions from Rocki’s blog:

Step 1:
2 very ripe frozen bananas
1 cup pure coconut water
1 Tbs protein powder
1 Tbs hemp seeds
vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla
1 cup ice

Blend the above.  Pour half or more of this vanilla mixture into a tall glass and leave the rest in the blender.

Step 2:
Add 1 Tbs or more of cacao powder to the remaining mixture in the blender and blend briefly until combined.  Pour slowly on top of the vanilla mixture.  I garnished mine with coconut and cacao nibs, but you can garnish any way you want or not.

Note: if you do not have very ripe bananas and/or like it more on the sweeter side, simply add sweetener of choice in Step 1.

*I’m totally going to make this again (many times over) and throw in some peanut butter.

Crocodile Crunch-Breakfast!

Image

The recipe is from The Kind Diet by Alicia Silver Stone. It is one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast. It’s delicious, pretty, and super filling, and it has a cute name.

I just happened to have all the ingredients except the kamut flakes in my kitchen. That never happens! Oh the importance of having a well stocked kitchen!

Image

Here ya go!

2-3 cups of bite-size pieces of fresh fruit (i used apples, bananas. strawberries, and blueberries)
2 teaspoons spirulina
1 1/2 tablespoons any nondairy milk
2 teaspoons almond butter (for this recipe, Alicia likes to use raw)
1 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons shaved fresh or dried coconut
1/2 cup kamut flake cereal

*I know spirulina is a little expensive and you can’t find it at most chain market stores but I’ve had my bag forever! I only use it occasionally and the small bag really has lasted me so long so I’d say just splurge! (my half pound bag was $13 and I’ve had it over a year)

Divide fruit into two serving bowls.

Use a fork to stir together the spirulina and soy milk in a small glass. Add the almond butter, and mix again. Stir in the syrup and orange juice, and give it a final stir. The sauce should be smooth and neither too thick nor too runny.

Pour the sauce over the fruit, and sprinkle with the coconut and cereal. Serve immediately.
