(NB: This shake is not for pregnant or nursing mothers.)
Serves 1 or 2 Prep: 1 minute Cook: 3 to 4 minutes
8 stalks asparagus, trimmed and chopped
½ cup peeled and thinly sliced daikon radish
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons moringa leaf powder
1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander
½ teaspoon Soma Salt
½ teaspoon Mom’s Masala
¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
¼ cup chopped cilantro (loosely packed)
3 tablespoons coarsely chopped parsley leaves
2 tablespoons Vegan Protein Powder
2 tablespoons Kulthi Detox Protein Powder
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (or to taste)
2 to 3 turns of the peppermill
- Bring 1 cup of water to a boil; add the asparagus, daikon radish, ginger, moringa, coriander, salt, masala, and turmeric. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes, until the vegetables soften but are still vibrant in color. Remove from the heat and add the cilantro and parsley (to let them wilt a bit).
- While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the blender: add 1 more cup of room temperature water, the protein powder, olive oil, lime juice, and pepper. Then add the cooked vegetables and blend until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding more water, if you like.
- Serve warm or at room temperature. Do not let it sit for more than 2 hours.
