Cherry-Raspberry Shake (raw)

Giving a recipe for a shake is kind of odd for me, because I usually just throw in whatever frozen fruit I have with whatever creamy base I have and add a squirt of agave and a dash of vanilla etc. My shakes don’t vary that much. I would like to try new flavors and combinations though. This one has cherries, raspberries and banana in cashew milk.

Raspberry Acai Shake:

1 1/2 Cup Cashew Milk (or 1 whole young coconut)

1 Cup Frozen Raspberries

1 Cup Frozen Cherries

1 Banana (Frozen or Fresh)

2-3 TB Agave (to taste)

1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

Squeeze of Lime Juice

Pinch of Sea Salt

Place the water and hemp seeds in your blender and blend on high speed until white and smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend on high again until fully smooth and broken down. Unless you have a super powerful blender like a Blendtec that will just pulverize the whole frozen acai bar, you’ll want to break it in pieces before putting it in your blender. You might need to let it thaw for about 10 minutes before you can break it apart or use a sharp knife to break it into pieces. If you decide to use the acai powder instead, it would be good to add a few ice cubes if you like it nice and cold in this summer heat. Enjoy!
