View Full Version : Good Breakfast Juice/Shake
02-05-2008, 07:31 AM
I am every where at once in the morning so I don't actually "eat" breakfast...of which I am not all that hungry ...but I do enjoy a protien shake...however one of the main reasons to switching most of my diet choices to raw is the high amounts of protien which is what, I think, it the reason for my stomach "issues". Can anyone please recommend a drink/shake that is easy/quick/and filling? And would it be possible to make a batch of it???
I am starting to crave nector drinks which might give a little of the bulk I am looking for or am I just kidding myself?
p.s still waiting for the Alissa Book...I think I getting a "raw" gift basket from my hubby for valentines day...we will see!!! blog that later~

There are literally hundreds of different shakes that you could try. You should experiment with different ingredients until you find one that you like.
To make a shake, you need liquid, and then other ingredients. I usually use water as the liquid base for my drinks, because I am too lazy to make juice or nutmilk. Coconut water is also good as a base.
Anyway, some of my personal favorites are:
1/2 cup water
2 cups frozen raspberries
1 head organic celery
honey/agave/dates to taste
1 cup nutmilk
4 small dates
1 heaping TBS cacao powder
Sweet and salty
4 clementines (blend into a liquid in blender, then add other ingredients)
1 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup organic baby spinach
3 TBS dulse powder (seaweed is so good for you, and actually makes this drink taste amazing)
I always use organic greens in my drinks because for some reason, I can really taste an awefull chemical taste when I use non-organic greens. Non-organic fruit doesn't bother me.

I like to keep my first meal of the day lite and providing energy to get going. I usually start my day with either apple/orange juice or cantaloupe. both great choices IMO.

bannanas, frozen strawberries and kale
usually do the trick for me
if I'm especially hungry then and apple with nut butter is always a good addition once i'm in the car
