Post yoga smoothie

I’ve had the pleasure and honor of working with Cade Martin for over a decade. He’s the brilliant photographer and genuinely nice guy responsible for the portraits of yours truly on my website.

Cade’s hosted a handful of yoga workshops and recently asked CREATED by Kathi Hersh to provide a healthy, post-workout treat.

The vegan smoothie I prepared contains an unlikely ingredient and was enjoyed by all.

Hope you’ll give it a try. Namaste.

White bean smoothie (serves 1)
1 c unsweetened almond milk
2 pitted dates
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 c drained and rinsed canned white kidney (cannellini) beans
1 T cacao powder
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t tumeric
dash cayenne pepper
a couple of ice cubes

Add almond milk and dates to a blender. Blend well to break up dates. Add remaining ingredients and blend til smooth and creamy.

Note: I drain and rinse a full can of beans and store them in a Ziploc bag in the freezer along with frozen banana slices. Makes pulling this together a breeze.
