Tutti-Frutti Orange Creme Smoothie:
Put the following in your Vitamix or other strong blender:
*2 T. Hempseed Protein
*2 T. Chia seed Gel*
*Filtered Water to soak Protein
*1 Ripe Organic Banana
*5 Pitted Medjool Dates
*2 Organic Oranges, peeled & pipped
*2 T. unsweetened organic coconut flakes
*Small piece of organic orange peel (washed) (optional)
*1 very ripe Avocado (optional)
*1 small organic Apple, chopped and seeded
*Water (2-3 Cups or more-- as you like)
*Process and enjoy!!! This will satisfy your hunger and thirst, provide you with ample fibre, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, and assorted whole food vitamin and minerals... for added minerals you could add a 1/4 teaspoon of kelp flakes.
*to make Chiaseed Gel, place 1/4 Cup of whole chiaseeds in a quart mason jar and add water to the top. Stir until the seeds are dispersed. Let absorb the water for at least 15- 20 minutes. Stir again. Put on lid and keep in the fridge to use with other recipes. Provides a high source of protein (4 gm in an ounce), fibre, calcium, magnesium, and more Omega3's than any other plant source, including flax seed. Use the "whole seeds" and not milled seeds. There is some indication that milled seeds lack the nutrients.
