Sesame - Sunflower Simplicity Smoothie

Who knew? Sunflower seed shoots are SO easy to sprout and taste FABULOUS in smoothies, giving them a sweet, nutty flavor! Try this healthy elixir to jump-start your morning. I have to add a post on sprouting these sweeties...but it truly is one of the easiest things to sprout - provided you don't have a pesky squirrel like I did, trying to eat every batch!

Wow..this looks yummy and a shortcut to making almond milk for the smoothie...just adding the almonds is a good idea...cashews work well too and totally disappear except for their creaminess. I am going to get some sunflower sprouts going immediately and can't wait to try this smoothie...thanks for the inspiration..;-)
Love and Blessings...Sallie
