You might think that only a corporation that makes pre-packaged junk food in a factory and labels it as "nutritional supplement" could create a super-high calorie shake that tastes great. Wrong! I have done it in my downstairs laboratory... MUAHAHAHAHAHA! No but really, this sucker has 720 calories, 48 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein, 57 grams of carbs AND tastes like a chocolate milkshake AND has tons of naturally-occurring, bioavailable vitamins from whole foods AND is adheres to my food combining rules (well... close enough). This shake totally rivals the macronutrient profile in a Scandishake and doesn't have any of the the toxins that make up that crap (have you read the ingredient list? It has pretty much everything on my "don't" list).
It's all about the macademia nuts. These nuts are so high in calories, I pretty much can't believe it, plus they are full of anti-inflammatory fats. In terms of nutrient density per dollar, I'm not sure I could find a more efficient food in the world. I have a wonderful friend in Hawai'i who sends me them in the mail, and I suggest you also order some mac nuts from Hawai'i instead of getting them at the co-op from somewhere in Kenya or Australia (nothing against these places, but let's buy in-country and support Hawai'ian farmers, ok?). They'll be a hell of a lot fresher and have the spirit of the 'aina in them. Here's a link to Hamakua Nut Company. This is a meal. I must warn you not to try to eat this with any other food... you might explode.
1/3+ cup unsalted macademia nuts
2 tsp whole flax seeds
1+ cup unsweetened hemp milk
2 big handfuls of fresh organic greens (something mild like lettuce or spring mix is best)
1 whole VERY ripe banana (let them get super ripe then freeze them for convenience)
1 Tbsp unsweetened organic, fair trade cocoa powder (can also use carob powder, which I prefer)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp raw local honey (can substitute with 3 chopped dates)
1 tsp cinnamon (for blood sugar regulation) or take a couple of cinnamon pills with it (or remember your insulin, if you take it)
1 tsp spirulina (optional)
1) In a blender (I use a friend's vitamix) blend together the banana, mac nuts, flax, hemp milk, lettuce, and dates if you are using them instead of honey. Blend until very smooth.
2) Add the rest of the ingredients and blend again until smooth. You may need to add a bit of water (~1/4 cup) to water it down enough to keep the blender going, and for consistency. Whir it up until super smooth and milkshakey.
Eat it up with your enzymes (might want to take an extra because of all the fat), lecithin, and cinnamon or insulin. You will definitely want to eat something bitter a few minutes beforehand to stimulate bile production to break down all the fats, like a bitters tincture or a glass of lemon water or some raw garlic (oh yeah! Wash it down with some chocolate shake!). Enjoy!
