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:
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.
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.

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!
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.
