A Happy New Year Treat


Happy 2009 everybody!

It’s New Year’s Resolution time again and many of us have made ourselves promises to become healthier in 2009.  In that spirit, here’s a vegan, dairy-free, grain-free, sugar-free treat that everyone is sure to love.  Orange Julius shakes were a childhood favorite of mine, and this recipe really comes close!

"Orange Juli-esque"

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1-1 1/2 cups of homemade almond milk*
  • 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients together in a blender, adjusting the amount of almond milk depending on the consistency desired.  For a non-vegetarian protein boost, blend in an organic raw egg.  Serves 2.

*For about 3 cups of homemade almond milk, blend 1 1/2 cups raw almonds with 3 cups water and strain through a colander lined with cheesecloth.  Optionally, you can add 1 tablespoon of honey and/or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
