DIVINE “NICE” CREAM
This is such a energizing and delicious morning smoothie or “nice’ cream (a healthy version ice-cream. I eat this after my workouts on the daily. It’s incredibly nourishing and for me in Arizona, cooling. You can play with this recipe and add or take out as you see fit. I like to play with different fruits, pineapple is a great option.
As you may know from following me on my raw food/ultimate health journey on Radiantly Raw, I used to be a hardcore raw vegan. I ended up getting very sick and tired for my tender age of 27. I couldn’t walk up my stairs. I changed my diet and overnight my energy was back. This smoothie uses some animal products and I’ve made my peace with it. I support vegan living and think it absolutely wonderful if it works for your body! I choose not to label myself as anything. I practice intuitive eating and let my body and heart lead me. I hope the same for you!
1 cup blueberries, frozen
1 cup strawberries, frozen
1 cup frozen avocado or 1 frozen banana (I like low sugar smoothies)
1 cup almond or coconut mylk
2 teaspoon coconut flakes
1 teaspoon colostrum (omit if vegan)
2 tablespoon raw almond butter
1 tablespoon raw local organic honey (omit if vegan)
1/2 lemon, squeezed
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Superfood toppings of choice
Begin with the frozen blueberry or strawberry. Reserve the berry you choose not to start with for the second layer. Add the berry of choice, 1/2 cup avocado or 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup almond mylk, 1 tablespoon coconut flakes, 1/4 teaspoon colostrum, 1 tablespoon almond butter, 1 tablespoon of honey or sweetener of choice, tad bit of lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon sea salt.
Start on low setting and work your way up. If you have a VitaMix, use the plunger. If not, very carefully open the lid on a low setting and us a spatula to help move the frozen avocado or banana along. By doing this you crate a really think smoothie or ice-cream you can eat with a spoon! Totally delightful!
Repeat with second layer!
