This is a lightly sweet creamy smoothie that kind of reminds me of blueberry but not quite. I think it would also be good with blue berries added to make a really awesome blueberry smoothie or ice cream. I also think it would be good with a little anise added, but I haven’t tried these yet.
2 sprinkle cinnamon
1 teaspoon non-alcohol vanilla extract
1 handful of hulled pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoon hulled hempseed
a few pecans (I used about 4 halves)
½ cup fresh cranberries or more to taste
water to desired consistency
If you do not have a high speed blender, use ground nuts. Then blend all together adding water to your desired consistency. I think any nuts or seeds would taste good with this recipe but I think the earthy flavours of the pecans, hemp seed & pumpkin seeds tones down the spikeyness of the cranberry very well. Walnuts would probably be a good substitute. For my smoothie I added enough water to make 1 and a half large glasses … enjoy!!!
