This is a yummy energy shake suitable for those of us who have physically active lifestyles!
The greens in this shake allow the sugars in the bananas to release slower for a more prolonged energy boost. There are lots of minerals in this sucker!!
2 Frozen Bananas, Peel and freeze the bananas in chunks about 10 hours or more prior to use.
2 tablespoon carob or cacao (not necessary, but yummy)
½ cup greens, could be spinach, chard, green cabbage, etc...
1 slice coconut meat, I use a big chunk, blended to shreads in the blender.
¼ cup coconut milk, almond milk or water
In the mornings when I get up, I blend some greens with almond milk and fresh coconut in the blender and then add half of the frozen bananas and blend to a chunky paste. Then I add carob and the rest of the bananas and blend until it has the texture of ice cream.
This makes a great summer breakfast, and you can add lots of superfoods like mesquite meal to it as well.
