http://www.goneraw.com I got this recipe from goneraw and I reworded it a bit... "Makes a big, tall glass of happiness. Easy and excellent way to wake up in the morning - keeps you going all day long."
Ingredients: 1 cup Water or your favorite nut milk 3 Medjool Dates 3 tablespoons Hemp seeds 2 tablespoons Raw Cacao nibs 1 pinch Celtic Sea Salt 1 Banana Ice
Instructions: Soak the medjool dates in 1 cup of water for 10-20 minutes. Add the dates and the soak water to your blender along with hemp, cacao and salt. Blend on high until smooth. You may want to grind cacao beforehand if you don't have a high powered blender - makes a smoother drink. Throw the banana in (frozen is better) and some ice and blend again until thick like a milkshake. You will be tempted, but don't drink too fast brain freeze!
Linda's note: Medjool dates are usually quite soft so you really don't need to soak them if you don't want to.
