Creamy Tropical Fruit Thickshake - Raw Vegan

All of the premium summer fruits in this thickshake are at their peak, super ripe, full of luscious sweetness and aroma and OMG drop dead so damn juicy and tasty... I just wish Craig was home it would be sooo easy for him on his 10 days raw! I think he would be in heaven too.. sorry Babe to tease you with these photos but Jordi and I are enjoying them for you.. xx

I've also added some photos of some beautiful Frangipanis I collected on my way home from my pre dinner walk last night. There are 3 different varieties in the bowl.. I wonder if you can tell the different, there is the white and yellow one and 2 pink varieties.. one has a little more orange than the other and they all smell slightly different. Their gorgeous aroma blends magnificently with the tropical fruit.. "I feel blessed!".. that's my positive affirmation for today. 

 Creamy Tropical Fruit Thickshake
Makes: 3 large serves.


2 super ripe and creamy Ladyfinger Bananas
1 super ripe and sweet Mango
1 ripe and gooey White Peach
1/4 small to medium sweet Pineapple
Handful Activated Almonds
2 scoops Raw Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder or Protein Powder of your choice.
1 cup ice
1/2 to 1 cup water 


Add all ingredients to a high speed blender (gee I hope you have a good one cos chunky is not good) and blend on its maximum speed for at least 45 seconds to a minute until it's wonderfully smooth and creamy just like the horrible dairy thickshakes we all remember from our childhood. :-)


 Forgot the mention my little friend that come up on the greens I picked from our garden this morning.. Pretty cute isn't he? 

 Enjoy your Sunday and I hope you have a bowl full of amazing Tropical fruit in your house so you can make this today.. perfect in this hot weather..
