Sweetness Without SugarWe are proud to share another recipe from Sweetness Without Sugar, courtesy of author Wendy Vigdor-Hess, RD.  Enjoy!

 

Shake Awake

 

1 cup unsweetened dairy-free, gluten-free milk (e.g. hemp, rice, almond, coconut)

1 scoop Sun Warrior Protein® Chocolate or Natural

1-2 Tbsp flax oil

1 packet Amazing Grass® wheatgrass

3 pitted dates

Liquid stevia to taste

 

Optional: Maca powder for a “malty” taste or a dash of cinnamon or a hint of ginger. This shake works well with added fruit too such as ½ frozen banana or ½ cup berries.  In the colder months our bodies may prefer warmer foods, leaving the frozen choices for summer.  Use your body as a guide and see what works for you and your family.

Blend ingredients together for a delightful pick me up.  If it is too thick for you, add some filtered water.
Adding greens to smoothies is a great way to get extra phytonutrients.
