Cherry Blossom Shake

This delicious shake may be just what you need to realize that Spring is indeed on the way. Sweetened with dates, yacon powder and lucuma, this delicious shake take no time to make if you already have some Mighty Brazil Nut Milk on hand!

- 2 cups Mighty Brazil Nut Milk*
- 3 bananas, frozen
- 1/2 T yacon powder
- 1 t lucuma
- 1 c. dark cherries, frozen and unsweetened
- 4 dates, or agave nectar

- Blend all the ingredients together until smooth.
- For added crunch, add a pinch of goji berries and cacao nibs on top of the shake. Stir them in, and enjoy the occasional crunchy bites.

* Blend 2/3 cup Brazil nuts with 1 inch vanilla bean, a tablespoon of dark agave nectar, and if you have some, a T of high-quality lecithin, with 2 cups of water. Strain through a nut milk bag.

YUM, I think my kiddos would love this too, being such fans of cherries. I need to go see if I can find some. Great idea!
