This recipe has many moods. It is mostly however what gives me a good start on most days and assures me that I am starting my day right. It also is highly portable and somthing that I can carry around and sip as I ready my kids for their day. I often vary the fruit with the season, and change the garnishes but keep a hint of saffron to emphasize that special and practical can be happily married.
- 11/2 cups almond or soy milk
- 1 cup raw cashew nuts
- 1/2 teaspoon black salt
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 6 cups cubed watermelon (3 pounds)
- Mint sprigs and saffron strands
Place the almond milk, cashew nuts, black salt, and honey in the blender and process into a smooth paste
Add in the watermelon and pulse a few times and then blend for 3 minutes until smooth and frothy. Please note, if the watermelon has large seeds, these need to be removed before adding.
Pour the watermelon shake into serving glasses and add a few strands of saffron and garnish with mint springs.
