Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut
  • 3/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  • Top tip!

    Make sure the nuts are completely covered with the warm water. This way they will be easier to blend and better for your digestion

    Step 1

    Combine almonds, salt, coconut and 2 cups of warm water in a container.  Cover with a lid and then let it sit for up to 8 hours or leave overnight at room temperature.

  • Step 2

    Then, drain the almonds and coconut from the soaking water.  

  • Step 3


    Add the soaked almonds and coconut to a blender with 2 cups filtered cold water, ice, protein powder, ginger, cinnamon and vanilla extract.

  • Top tip!

    If you prefer a thinner shake, pass the liquid through a fine sieve before serving to remove the almond meal.

    Step 4

    Puree until very smooth (this usually takes around 4 minutes), then serve.
