The Raw Crunch® Bar Smoothie

raw-crunch-bar-3verticalThe Raw Crunch® Smoothie – Get Heart Healthy Fats Into Your Smoothies & Shakes

Raw nuts and seeds are great additions to green smoothies or shakes. If you can’t get the raw ones, baked or roasted are still great as long as they are unsalted and unsweetened.

Just soak the raw nuts or seeds overnight, then rinse them, and add them into your smoothie. (Different nuts and seeds will have different soaking times.)

If you forget the soaking part or just don’t want to bother, you might just want to add a Raw Crunch® Bar instead.

The raw, organic nuts and seeds they use, are properly soaked and rinsed before being mixed together into the bar.

Raw Juice Versus Raw Blends

green-smoothie-in-a-glassI love fresh raw juice, but I am careful not to over-drink it. Everything in moderation, right?

If you are not careful even small amounts of raw fruit juices can be sweet enough to stimulate your body’s insulin response. Not good for people desiring weight loss.

I wrote a post previously, Natural Energy Boosters To Help You Get Your Goals, and I had someone question me about the lack of fiber in fresh juices and the possibility of causing an insulin response.

That article was about creating energy boosts to get more done and create more joy in your life. So, here is a follow up post of what I usually do. Raw Juice Versus Raw Blends (Smoothies) along with a video at the bottom.

Fresh raw juices are packed with nutrients that will be instantly available for your body’s needs. No need for your digestive system to break it down from the fiber. That is why they create so much energy for you so quickly.

Almond milk tastes great and is actually much healthier for you than dairy milk! It’s lower in fat, calories, cholesterol, and it’s higher in vitamin A, vitamin E and iron.

Raw Nut milks also have all their enzymes intact so they are more bio-available, easily digested and assimilated, and as such will give you way more energy.

Also for those with dairy allergies, you can substitute seed and nut milks in your creations. (Obviously, if you have nut allergies, you won’t be able to use these recipes.)

When blending your almond milks, use a one to four ratio, that is one cup pre-soaked almonds added to four cups of filtered or distilled water .
