Sunday’s Food Journal – Vanilla Chai Frozen Shake Recipe

by Kristen Suzanne in food journal, sun warrior rice protein

Here is Sunday’s Food Journal. Scrumptiously delicious and satisfying. It’s organic, vegan, with lots of raw foods.

Honeydew Melon Slushie – Kamea and I enjoyed this together. It was so refreshing, sweet, and easy on the digestion having it first thing in the morning. Who need coffee when you can have something nutrient packed and fun like this?! Simply blend together melon and ice.

Boku bar – Before I headed to the gym I grabbed one of these to eat. I felt like I needed more oompf for my workout than just the Honeydew Melon Slushie.

TLT Sandwich – One of my favorite treats is going to Dr. Weil’s Tru Food restaurant and having his TLT sandwich. TLT stands for “tempeh, lettuce, and tomato.” We didn’t get there this week, so I decided to experiment and make a Kristen Suzanne version. It was fab! The contents: Toasted ezekial bread from Whole Foods, tempe that I dry toasted in a skillet with a little hot sauce, tamari, and mirin, (raw) Garlic Cheese spread, thick slices of tomato, sliced cucumber, a pile of green leaf lettuce. So, as you can see, there is quite a bit of raw in this sandwich with the Garlic Cheese spread, tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce – making this a great raw vegan transition type meal.

Vanilla Chai Frozen Shake – HELLO! This was fantabulistic! It’s a MUST MAKE. Sun Warrior sent me some of their vanilla protein powder to try (I heard they improved it since I last had it). The shake recipe is below.

6 thin slices tempeh leftover from sandwiches

Wrap Salad packed with red leaf lettuce, dried cranberries, carrots, cucumber slices, fresh dill from the new CSA I just joined, and Garlic Cheese.

(MUST MAKE) Vanilla Chai Frozen Shake Yield 3 cups

  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon raw vanilla powder

Blend it all up in your blender and enjoy this frozen deliciousness!
