Dandelion Dreams Smoothie

Prep time:
7 minutes

  • 3 dandelion leaves
  • 2–3 bananas
  • ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon Shilajit
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1–2 cups spring water
  • 1 tray ice cubes
  • Raw cacao nibs, sprinkle on top of smoothie (optional)
  • Wedge of pineapple (optional)

Blend ingredients together in a high-speed blender until smooth. Dandelion is rich in vitamins A, C, D, and B complex, and in trace minerals such as magnesium. Dandelion is known to have the highest Vitamin A content of all greens. Dandelion is not only great to add to your smoothies and/or juices; you can incorporate it in your salads, spreads, breads, and jams. Because dandelion is a little bit bitter, I tend to add raw honey to help sweeten the taste of the smoothie. (This would be a raw recipe if you eliminated the Shilajit.)

Shilajit is a powder which is harvested by hand, and then dried at a low temperature. Containing over 85 minerals, Shilajit is said to remove weakness from the body and build strength as a result. I started taking Shilajit after my acupuncturist recommended it to me. You can purchase Shilajit from Natural Zing and Sunfood. I immediately went out and purchased a pouch and began using it in my smoothies every morning. A month later, when I went back to my acupuncturist, he told me that my pulses had never been better. Since that time I have consistently improved and continue to get stronger.
