This week for Raw Wednesday I thought I would share with you a recipe for a smoothie I made this week. Smoothies in my house are beginning to orginate from conveneince – that is whatever fruit/veggie combo is on hand. And sometimes they are just fruit smoothies – as a delicios snack or meal.
So here is a recipe from my house to yours. My dear husband says it tasted like a blended upside down pineapple cake – but with that being said you might want to read his comment about how raw food doesn’t ever really taste anything like the what you would expect based on the recipe title. So for instance, if you find a raw recipe for a hamburger, don’t expect it to taste anything like a hamburger. So you will have to decide for yourself on this one – and if you try it, come back and leave a comment on what you would title it!
Upside Down Pineapple Cake Smoothie
- 1 cup pineapple
- 1.5 cups grapes
- 2 oranges – peeled
- 1 cup soaked cashews
- 1 cup coconut milk
- water to thin to consistency you want – about 1.5-2 cups
- 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (this isn’t raw, to keep it raw you could try 5-6 soaked dates or raw agave to help sweeten it)
This makes a lot – it was lunch for both me and my dear husband so you might want to cut the recipe in half. I hope you like it – enjoy!
