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.)
– 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!
