Almond Milk Shake

Here’s a delicious way to start the morning or a great idea for a mid morning snack. Almonds are loaded with monounsaturated fats which have been shown to reduce the risk of certain cancers, reduce cholesterol levels, lower risks of heart disease and stroke, contribute to weight loss and reduce the elusive belly fat among other things. Almonds are also a great source of protein. Check out this simple recipe.

Almond Shake

Handful of Almonds

6 ounces Milk (whole or raw)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon raw honey

1-2 Egg whites (optional for extra protein)

Place all the ingredients in a powerful blender and blend well until the almonds are completely mixed.  Another option would be to soak the almonds until soft first and strain the water in a colander before mixing
