Almond Date Greens Shake

almondgreendateshake

The Almond date shake is a well-known ojas (that which is responsible for deep immunity & vitality) and energy promoting drink. The Almond Date Greens shake is a twist on this classic recipe, incorporating one of my favorite supplements: a green superfood  mix.Green superfood mixes are not traditionally '?yurvedic', but for modern women they provide an iron-rich, oxygen-rich, protein-rich source of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. Since green mixes can provoke v?ta, and be difficult to digest, it is important to consume them in a simple, grounding drink. The properties of soaked almonds, and dates blended with water give the greens a perfect compliment.  While this drink is beneficial for everyone, it is especially powerful during the childbearing years and for kids (my daughter loves it!).  Give it a try and let us know what you think!

Recipe:

  • 15 raw, organic almonds - soaked overnight or blanched, then peeled
  • 4 organic medjool dates, soaked 15-60 minutes (if time permits), and pitted
  • 1 heaping Tbsp of your favorite greens superfood mix (my favorites are Pure Synergy, and Vitamineral Green)
  • 8-10 oz. filtered, room temp water

Blend up the almonds and dates on high speed in your blender. Then on low speed, add the greens. Voilà! Enjoy :-)
