Coconut Almond Ginger Protein Shake


Makes 2 servings

3/4 cup raw almonds
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 cups cold water
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons coconut butter (or substitute coconut oil)
Honey, to taste (optional)


1.  Place all ingredients in a blender. Puree until very smooth (about 4 minutes with a conventional blender). If you prefer a thinner shake, you can pass through a fine sieve to remove the almond meal.

Variation: You can skip using whole nuts and replace the 2 cups of cold water in with 1 cup of coconut milk and 1 cup of almond milk, and proceed from there.
