Our very talented friend, Julie Beyer, who you might remember from last Spring’s Whole Food Challenge, wanted to share with us her recipe for a Raw Chocolate Cherry Malt Shake.  We of course said, YES!

Ingredients:

3/4 cup almonds (soaked overnight in filtered water)
1 1/2 cups pitted organic cherries
3 tbsp organic raw cacao (yo ucan replace all or half with carob)
1/2 cup filtired water or as needed to create smoothie consistency
1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil or raw cacao butter
1/2 tsp green stevia (my favourite is from Suede Hills farm)*
1/4 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean powder (optional)

Optional: add extra sweetness from maple syrup or dates or try a dash sea salt.

*If you do not have green stevia replace with 1 or 2 medjool dates or 1 – 2 tbsp organic dark maple syrup.

Method:

Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender and enjoy! This makes for a light breakfast that is sure to give you a surge of energy and delight your taste buds.
