Sweetness Without SugarWe are proud to share another recipe from Sweetness Without Sugar, courtesy of author Wendy Vigdor-Hess, RD. Enjoy!

Shake Awake

1 cup unsweetened dairy-free, gluten-free milk (e.g. hemp, rice, almond, coconut)

1 scoop Sun Warrior Protein® Chocolate or Natural

1-2 Tbsp flax oil

1 packet Amazing Grass® wheatgrass

3 pitted dates

Liquid stevia to taste

Optional: Maca powder for a “malty” taste or a dash of cinnamon or a hint of ginger. This shake works well with added fruit too such as ½ frozen banana or ½ cup berries. In the colder months our bodies may prefer warmer foods, leaving the frozen choices for summer. Use your body as a guide and see what works for you and your family.
