Now that we are getting some days moving into the 80 degree range it's time for some healthy yet delicious alternatives to the full of sugar, full of dairy (glue to your cells especially lungs) products. And yes, this is a breeder of dairy goats talking to you! I've had my herd mainly for show and because I really enjoy their antics and how they bond with their humans. And, when I use dairy I want to control the source and keep it chemical free... So onto the shake!
Into my blender (I use a Vitamix and I have a link for those on my site if you don't have access to a good quality one) I put a ripe banana, about two cups of fresh strawberries, and about 8 ounces of organic soy milk along with about 1/4 tsp of some of our medicinal quality cinnamon. Then I whirled it up and YUM! It took me about 2 minutes to make that- the time was in cutting the tops off of the strawberries. Very healthy and very yummy!
I can hear you thinking- how can soy milk be healthy? Yes, I know that soy is controversial. But it isn't when you know what to look for... You MUST work with ORGANIC made from WHOLE BEANS soy. If you work with non organic you will certainly be consuming GMO (genitically modified) products. If it is not whole bean such as a soy protein product then you will most certainly over time be putting your reproductive hormones into a state of imbalance with health consequences. For those that are soy sensitive you can consider almond milk, oat milk, hazlenut milk (for chocolate flavor without the damaging caffeine) or other alternative non dairy milks.
