I made a variation of the Young Living recipe below, swapping coconut milk for almond milk and 2 scoops of Balance Complete Protein Powder (which is vanilla) for 1 scoop of the Pure Protein Complete chocolate.
This recipe comes directly from the Young Living blog:
This breakfast tastes like a dessert but packs a punch with ingredients you won’t feel guilty about.

Experiment with your smoothies by adding any combination of these essential oils:
Cinnamon Bark Vitality

Ya. So wait til you pour your shake into glass, THEN add your oils. Unless you have a fancy schmancy non-plastic mixer.
There are bazillions of ways to vary that recipe. I was in the mood for 'very vanilla with a hint of mint'. Here's what I used:
1 1/4 c coconut/almond milk blend (I like Califia farms)
1 c ice
2 scoops Balance Complete Shake mix
1/2 tsp homemade vanilla
a few kale leaves, just for color
5 drops liquid stevia (sweeten as you see fit)
3 drops Young Living Peppermint (it was strong, you may like less)
I was afraid to add too much Kale! LOL. Kale is a newish food for me that seems bitter sometimes, so I went light. Here's a pic with a 15 ml oil by it to show you... the scale of my kale! :-) Spinach, kale, whatever you have on hand - just a tad for the color or don't use any. You get to decide!
That shake was was really good. But now, I'm thinking I want to make it with Pure Protein Complete in chocolate and throw a flax brownie in it. YuUuUmmy!! That IS a dessert...
Here's another version from The Well Oiled Life:
I'd like to try that one, too! We have so many healthy oprions nowadays and I'm very grateful for that, aren't you? Be well!!
