Recipe: The Tiger Shake

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

From the Vitality Food Feature ‘WINTER MEALS THAT HEAL’.

Spiced date shakes are popular in India. This is a nice change from the frozen berry and banana shakes that can leave you chilled (not recommended for a winter morning). The hemp hearts, dates, and cinnamon have a warming and soothing effect on the body. Maca is also a reproductive tonic, meaning it protects against stress-induced imbalances in sex hormones. This shake gets its creaminess from the sterol-rich tahini, which is a wonderful immune booster.
(Makes 2 large or 3 shakes)
