Raw Food Chef, Stacy Stowers, came up with a delicious and nutritious shake called the Happy Shake. We have it every morning for breakfast now. It's full of antioxidants, complete proteins, amino acids, energizing cacao and maca powder. It feels good, is good for you and keeps you full.
In a blender add:
1/2 cup liquid base.....water, juice, or coconut milk. Also add a handful of ice.
3-4 cups fresh spinach.....GREEN is Glorious!
1T. coconut oil or 1T. almond butter...good fat won't make you fat!
This is essential in keeping you satisfied and metabolizing the spinach.
Blend to get a green liquid. Now add:
1T. Maca powder - increases stamina, endurance, mental clarity, boosts libido and balances hormones
1T. Raw Cacao powder (Raw Chocolate)...a potent super-food rich in anti-oxidants, minerals and magnesium
1T. GREEN RAW powder....GREEN is highly alkalizing and this powder provides naturally occurring antioxidants, protein, enzymes, amino acids, essential fatty acids, and dozens of phytonutrients. Very important for weight management and longevity! 1 Raw Egg - Eating eggs raw helps preserve many of the highly perishable nutrients such as lutein and zeaxanthin, which are powerful agents in preventing macular degeneration. Raw egg yolks also contain vital enzymes that are destroyed when cooked.
Add 1 cup of your favorite frozen fruit. We like bananas and blueberries. Enjoy!
