Goji-berries

 

 

 

 

This is a delicious smoothie and excellent for those with a dairy intolerance as the liquid for this drink is made from a variety of activated nuts.

I used a mix of soaked Almond, Brazil and Cashew nuts for the milk. The ratio I used was 1 cup nuts:2 cups water

I blended this for 1 minute on high and strained it through a nut bag to remove the pulp.

To the nut milk I added:

  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4-1/2 tbsp of vanilla powder (ground up vanilla beans)
  • hand ful of Goji berries
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil

I blended this also for 1 minute on high.
