Almond Banana Shake

"Based on a recipe from Carol Alt's cookbook, The Raw 50. She says in its introduction, ".... As Dr. Gonzalez notes in his foreword, germinated almonds may help protect against cancer. (They supposedly have estrogen blockers.) That is why I eat them and include them in every meal I can." Almond milk is a non-dairy milk made out of almonds; you can find ready-made almond milk in your grocer's natural foods section. I have made this with purchased almond milk; recipe #356213 is a delicious homemade almond milk! :)"

  1. I was suprised to enjoy the light cinnamon taste. At first I didn't like it much, but as i continued to drink it it grew on me.
  2. This was very refreshing & satisfying!! I doubled the recipe and drank it down for a quick lunch :D I used fresh almond milk and doubled the bananas as we have the small lady fingers out here. This was super delicious & I will be making again for sure!! Made for Veg*n Swap 26!!
  3. I actually loved this healthy beverage although my DD & DH felt it needed something more to sweeten it. I felt the banana made it sweet enough as it was very ripe. Thanks for posting! Made for "Veg*n Swap 15 ~ Oct 2009!
  4. Very satisfying shake. Made two one using vanilla almond milk and one using chocolate almond, both were great. Love how healthy and satisfying these were. Thanks so much for the great post.
  5. I tripled this recipe in order to have two tall drinks for 2 of us & that was about right, although I did use just 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon! A GREAT TASTING BREAKFAST DRINK! Thanks for posting, & I'll have to dig into that recipe for homemade almond milk! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a PRESSIE in the Aus/NZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap]
