Sharing with you one of Meg Pearson’s delicious recipes from her blog:
Quick! Hunger strikes! And your body craves protein, plant fibre and flavour! Do not fret, I got you covered.
I was saving this recipe for m recipe book, due out end of August (yes, I am finally writing a cookbook, and doing all of the food photography myself!). It is going to be fully vegetarian (mostly vegan) and primarily RAW (’cause that is my passion, friends!).
But, after making this much loved smoothie for myself once again this afternoon, I decided that it is just too damn good not to share. NOW.
Chia Lucuma Smoothie
1 C almond milk
1 C water
½ C coconut milk (or 3 frozen coconut milk cubes are even better)
½ very ripe banana
1 t cinnamon
2 t lucuma powder
1 T chia seeds
½ t stevia or 1 t agave
Blend. Drink. Love.
*Lucuma: this fruit powder is a natural sweetener but also hosts a slew of health benefits – fibre, protein & potassium to list a few. It has a delicate caramel like flavour.
