Vegan Pecan Pie Mylkshake and Sprout Living Giveaway!

Sprout Living was kind enough to send me some of their FD Sprout Mixes (which can be found here: https://www.sproutliving.com/shop/fd-sprout-bundle/ ).  I sprout things myself, and I love to serve sprouts on top of salads, but I had never tried the dried variety that they offer before.  Sprouts are a good thing to add to your diet because they contain lots of nutrients.  I mean, think about it.  When you sprout a seed you are unleashing all that energy and life! And, many of the things enjoyed as sprouts are already nutrient dense items.  Sprout living offers 3 different sprout mixes, Omega Gather, which is a mix of Flax Sprouts, Chia Sprouts, Pumpkin Sprouts and Sesame Sprouts.  Broccoli and Kale, and Red Clover and Daikon Radish.  They are raw, vegan and gluten free! At first, I thought the second two might taste kind of vegetal, but they all actually taste kind of nutty, which I love!

Sprout Mixes

I have been sprinkling a little bit over my morning overnight oats for an added nutrition boost and I love it!  I also created a shake the other day with the Omega Gather blend that I wanted to share with you all.  This blend is rich in omega 3 oils, so it is perfect for adding to blended drinks as an added boost.

Pecan Pie Shake 1

So, when I went to make a Vegan Pecan Pie Mylkshake for me and Eric the other day, I added some in along with the Sprout Living Vanilla Lucuma Epic Protein Powder.  I needed a boost of protein, because I had ran, biked and walked that day.  I always have pecan butter in my fridge for recipes (I love it in caramel), and it was perfect for this, along with dates to give it that pecan pie flavor.  I chose the Omega Gather blend to pair with it because it tastes the most nutty to me.

Pecan Pie Shake

I used a combination of apples and bananas as a base, because the bananas make it taste like ice cream, and the apples add sweetness.  Once the dates, vanilla and pecans are added it tastes like pecan pie with ice cream.  Sooo good! And, I got my protein and sprout boosts from the Sprout Living additions.

Pecan Pie Shake 3

If you are looking for a way to easily add nutrients to your food, you need to check out the Sprout Living FD blends https://www.sproutliving.com/shop/fd-sprout-bundle/.  You can just add a spoonful on top of your breakfast cereal or porridge, or into your smoothies, and voila! I even sprinkled some of the gather blend on top of some sliced peaches with nuts and it was kind of like a quick not so sweet crumble.  Delicious. Also, I am giving away a 3 pack of the Sprout Living FD Blends I mentioned earlier to one lucky winner!  So, if you would like to try some, go to the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of the page to enter! Also, Sprout Living has been kind enough to give any of you a discount if you would like to buy any of their products!  To get 10% off of your order, use the coupon code: FRAGRANT10 on their website: https://www.sproutliving.com/

    The first thing I'd do with the Sprout Living powder is make this pecan pie mylkshake! It looks fantastic and perfect for fall! I'd also love the powder in smoothies, on oatmeal, and in granola bars to add an extra nutritional punch.

    I live in an assisted living facility, which takes most of my monthly income, and meds take the rest. I was healthier when I got here. (My hips degenerated to the point that they wouldn't support me anymore.) I had lost at least 200 lb., all my allergies, no cholesterol or triglyceride problems, no diabetes despite being morbidly obese for about 25 years. Nearly all of The food here is dead, and I am not thriving. They'd re being economical, and I can't seem to educate them. I really need some help!

    The autumn and winter are coming (where I live the climat is very cold so I try to boost my energy as well in the morning as later in the day) and I often feel like drinking something hot more than eating a "normal" dessert. I have a cravings especially for chocolate milk. So, why not to make a virtue of necessity (I mean - find an excuse to drink more homemade nut milk with raw cocoa :) ) and enjoy a super healthy, energy-boosting and delicious drink (with my biggest love ever - lucuma) ? Mmmm... even just imagining that makes my mouth water...
