If you've just started to change your eating habits to fit with the veggie and fruit filled raw diet, finding raw desserts can be a real headache.   Don't worry-- we've got your sweet tooth covered.  You will need a fairly strong blender for this recipe.

Frozen Fruit and Almond Milk Smoothie

  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 3-4 tablespoons raw honey (to taste)
  • 2-3 cups frozen fruit, such as berries, cherries, or peaches
  • 4  ice cubes

Directions

  1. Add the almond milk and honey to your blender carafe.  Make sure the lid is on securely and pulse until the honey is incorporated.   If you wait to add the honey until after you put the frozen fruit in, the honey will harden before it blends in. You'll find it stuck like candy to the inside of your blender, rather than sweetening the smoothie.  Still delicious, but much less useful.
  2. Once the honey's mixed in, turn off the blender and remove the lid. Dump your fruit in, making sure that the blender is no more than two-thirds full. If it's fuller than that, you're likely to end up with a mess when you turn it back on, unless you have a super-good lid.  My blender lid looksair-tight, but still leaks when turned on if the carafe is over-full.
  3. Use your judgement, and pour a little of the mixture into a separate container to blend later, if it does start to leak out the top.
  4. Blend the fruit and almond milk until the desired consistency is reached, and add the ice cubes at the last minute for extra thickness, if desired.

Serve immediately.  Makes four 8 ounce shakes, or two 16 ounce shakes.
