10 ounces tea infused water (infused for 24 hours; I like to use 2 tablespoons Pau d'arco and 1 tablespoon Cat's Claw)
1/4 cup cashews (soaked 7-8 hours)
2 tablespoons hemp seed (unsoaked)
1 tablespoon goji berries (unsoaked)
1½ tablespoons cacao powder
2 teaspoons maca
1 tablespoon mesquite meal
¼ of a vanilla bean or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (seeds only or seeds and skin if you have a powerful blender)
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Black pepper (to taste)
½ tablespoon coconut butter or coconut oil
Sprinkle of sea salt
1 teaspoon noni powder (optional)
2 teaspoons bee pollen or 1 teaspoon agave (fresh frozen pollen if possible)
1. After infusing the tea for 24 hours, pour into a nut mylk bag placed over a bowl and strain.
2. Add half the tea to the blender with the rest of the ingredients, and start the blender on low.
3. After scraping down the mixture with the blender running, turn up to high until well blended.
4. Then add the rest of the water, and blend another 10 seconds or so.
Achin70's ThoughtsBy achin70
This is not a sweet decadent smoothie, but a superfood smoothie that will keep you going for hours on end!
This smoothie is strongly modeled on “The New Cacao Beverage” from Naked Chocolate by David Wolfe.
This drink is closer to smoothie territory, whereas the original is more like a nut mylk in its consistency.
By the way, version 1.0 was somewhat of a flop, so I came back with this little bad boy!
