Rather than make another fruit smoothie, why not try a savory one like this earthy, warming, and grounding delight.
Dr. Ed Bauman shared this delicious recipe during Teas and Talks at the Ceres Community Project in Sebastopol, CA this last year.
Miso Booster Smoothie
Ingredients: (Serves 4)
3 cups hot filtered water (not boiling)
2 Tbs white miso
1 1/2 Tbs nutritional yeast
1 tsp dulse flakes
1 scoop Vital Scoop or 1 tsp spirulina and 1 scoop of whey, rice, or hemp protein powder
2 Tbs toasted sesame seeds
3/4 cup cashews, soaked for 2 hours and drained
Granulated garlic, to taste
Pure chile powder, to taste
1. Bring water to a boil and remove from heat. Allow to sit for 5 minutes to cool off a bit, then add the miso and stir until dissolved.
2. In a blender, combine the miso broth, nutritional yeast, dulse flakes, Vital Scoop, toasted sesame seeds, and cashews and process until smooth. Serve with a sprinkle of granulated garlic and/or chile powder, if desired.
