anti recipe: purple haze smoothie

2016-01-09 13.47.20

One Saturday morning, I found my self with a baby hangover and an impending already-booked noon hot power yoga class.

Like some girls purposely don’t shave their legs before going out (so they don’t, you know, doink with randos), I often sign up for early yoga classes on weekend mornings as incentive to get my ass into bed at a reasonable hour the night before.

Unfortunately for me and leg-shaving-diverters alike, that rarely ever actually happens – so there I was in need of an elixir. Instead of some hair of that dog, I blended up a dose of healthy fats, natural sugar, plant-based protein and antioxidants to kick my hangover and get me out the door!

Check out the recipe below:

Purple Haze Smoothie


– 2 dates

– Handful almonds

– 1 cup organic frozen cherries

– 1/2 cup cashew milk

– Vanilla (WDG seal of approval: I use Lafaza Madagascar bourbon ground vanilla not because I care about adding Bourbon or Madagascar to my smoothies, but because powdered vanilla is pure with no grain alcohol added. I only use liquid vanilla extract when I’m cooking at high temps.)

– Cinnamon

– Hemp seeds on top

Directions: Throw everything in, blend, top with hemps and enjoy the ride…

Dates + cherries make the purple and hemp makes the haze… get it?! Drop me a line if you don’t or if you tried it!
