A fabulously delicious, versatile and filling raw breakfast that will definitely give you the nutritional oomph to get through the day until lunch time.

Use the leftover sauce with pancakes, yogurt, ice cream, or layered with raw almond or cashew butter on sprouted spread. Sarah Britton shares with us a lot of wonderful information about the importance of soaking grains on her amazing blog My New Roots. Here is a little excerpt:
"Soaking allows enzymes, lactobacilli and other helpful organisms to break down and neutralize phytic acid. As little as seven hours of soaking in acidulated water will neutralize a large portion of phytic acid in grains. The simple practice of soaking cracked or rolled cereal grains overnight will vastly improve their nutritional benefits."

Sheleana of Young and Raw decided to create a raw vegan strawberry milkshake after a Facebook fan requested a recipe. This milkshake is definitely thick, creamy and sweet but actually contains no sugar, instead it relies on the natural sweetness of a single date, frozen banana, and the inherent sweetness of strawberries. Using frozen strawberries and banana for this recipe is crucial as it will add to that chilled milkshake effect. You could even freeze the nut/coconut milk in ice cube trays if you want an even more frozen style shake. Adding hemp seeds, vanilla protein powder, maca, and tocotrienols will bump this tasty dessert into super nutrition status.
