DIRECTIONS

  • If you have soaked the nuts and seeds overnight, use a small sieve to drain off the water.
  • In a blender or processor with the lid on, process the almonds, sunflower and flax seeds on high, until they are coarsely ground.
  • Pour in filtered water slowly at first, so that the blades reduce the ingredients to a thick consistency.
  • Add the remaining liquid and continue blending.
  • Add apple juice, banana or berries, vanilla extract and nutmeg, and blend until frothy. Pour into a glass and drink immediately.
  • Health Tip: If you suffer from fatigue at any time during the day when the demands of work do not permit a siesta break, keep a small container of almonds with you at all times. Even half a dozen almonds will give you that much-needed energy boost. Bananas are pretty good in the same way but almonds are more portable and sometimes eating a banana just isn’t an option!
