live morning milkshake

May 4, 2009

Here is the smoothie recipe that I promised a few days ago:

1/4 c. hulled buckwheat
2 tsp. sesame seeds
2 tsp. flax seeds
5 – 10 almonds
1/2 c. milk (any kind, water works in a pinch)
1/2 c. plain yogurt or kefir
1 tsp. vanilla
1 TB. honey, agave, or 3 dates
Fruit, fresh or frozen (we like 1 banana and 3 strawberries)
1/2 c. ice, if the fruit was not frozen.

Soak first 4 ingredients overnight in a pint jar, covered well with water. In the morning, drain and rinse. Pour this mixture into blender with remaining ingredients. Whiz until well-blended and creamy. Serves 1 adult.

This drink is so incredibly scrumptious. It is from Kim Simmerman’s recipe book “Granola to Green: Nourishing, Frugal, and Simple Meals for Vibrant Health.” You can order her book by emailing her at It is full of fabulous recipes, nutrition information, and time-saving tips. I cannot recommend it highly enough! If you decide to order one, let her know I sent you!
