YieldAbout a pint depending on how much liquid you use!
2 fairly traded bananas
1/3 cup golden flaxseeds
1 medjool date
Small handful raisins or more if you want
1 tsp mesquite
1 tsp maca
1 tsp spirulina
1 tsp cinnamon
Liquid - I used water but nut milk would also be good!
Soak the raisins in a little water whilst you do something else like showering or stretching, for 20 mins - 1/2 hour
Pour the soak water into your blender, set the soaked raisins aside.
Grind the flax seeds into a powder, and add to the blender.
Add the bananas, date, mesquite, cinnamon and spirulina.
Add liquid so it goes upto about half of the mix in the blender (at a guess)
Blend until smooth.
Add the maca and more liquid if needed.
Quickly whizz so it all mixes together.
Pour into a glass or bowl, add the raisins and mix in.
Sit down and eat slowly and mindfully, remembering to thoroughly chew each mouthful - this is the part I struggled with. Oh well will just have to make it again and try and do it properly ;-)
Maidenofthewell's ThoughtsBy maidenofthewell
This is what I just had for breakfast, it was amazing! It was meant to be a smoothie but came out with more of a cakemixey texture. More liquid would probably make it more smoothie like. Also, you could probably use less liquid and dehydrate it into muffin/cookie type things.
