Hey all!

This will be the last post before we head on down to Portland for Vida Vegan Con 2013 this evening! Just a little green shake I made to cheer myself up after talking with the financial people over at the hospital where I took my uninsured, fractured arm, back in April. :p I’m going to try to put that out of my mind until next week so I can enjoy all the festivities this weekend. Should be quite a lot!

We had been eating all raw since Sunday to cleanse before what will be an incredible amount of vegan food and treats this weekend, but we broke it last night with a trip to our favorite Seattle vegan bar, Highline. I figured I should probably get the tum ready with these yummy steak & black bean nachos they had on special.

Mmm! Those were good. But after feeling a little down and unmotivated after this morning’s conversation, I decided a little chlorophyll might do a body good. That, and I had a craving for a vanilla milkshake! I made a proper green revision of my previous Raw Vegan Milkshakes. Here’s the recipe!

Cheer Up Green Shake (Raw)

2 c. almond milk (raw or store bought)
3 ripe bananas, halved
2+ c. frozen spinach
1/2 c. frozen pineapple chunks
1 tbsp. flax seeds, optional
2 tbsp. raw carob powder, optional
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg

2-3 c. of ice, to liking

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender, adding ice a cup at a time, to preference.

Okay, now to go pack, wash my hair and shower. I look forward to seeing so many of you in Portland very, very soon! ~Ty

  • Someone told me recently that combining bananas and pineapple was not a good thing for one’s stomach.
    It’s not a combo I use in my smoothies but never something I consciously avoided. Have you ever heard that?
