Gorilla Milk is my favorite way to drink green juice. The name sounds kind of crazy. The first time I heard of Gorilla Milk was 3 year ago from Lou Corona. He is a raw vegan Health Coach and lives, breathes and teaches raw vegan food. I was blessed to have been mentored by him for 45 days to do a raw vegan cleanse. He is a genuine, kind person and knows his stuff! Gorilla Milk is one of the nutritional drinks that he told me I had to drink to make sure I was getting enough protein and nutrients while cleansing. It still is one of my favorites. I did change it up a bit. I used what was available in my fridge. I’m a practical gal!
I added dinosaur kale, celery, red leaf lettuce, parsley, and cilantro. Last week I added arugula, swiss chard, cucumber and lettuce. I get different greens in my weekly Farm box and since this week, I only got a few greens, I went to the market to get more. I need my green juice!!!! I need my Gorilla Milk! I have such poor absorption in my gut that if I don’t have my green juice, I feel dehydrated and tired. It is my lifeline!!!
Adding homemade almond milk to green juice helps to absorb the nutrients. It also adds essential omega 3 fatty acids, protein and calcium. Gorilla Milk will sustain me for hours longer than just a plain green juice. Actually, if I had the greens straight without the almond milk, I could only drink a small glass because it would make me nauseated…it is so detoxifying. But with the almond milk, I can drink a whole quart of green juice without any bad reaction at all and I feel amazing and energized! Be sure to check out my homemade almond milk tutorial, its super easy to make!
So if you are having a hard time getting your green juice down, make Gorilla Milk. You can add red apples to your green juice if you want it sweeter. I prefer mine plain and simple in a nice tall glass with a straw. (These are the fun re-usable red plastic straws I use.)
I could drink this whole recipe myself but you see that hand in the background pouring the almond milk… that is my awesome hubby! I snatched him out of his office to come and pour the almond milk so I can snap a picture. He got the first honorary glass of Gorilla Milk. He is also a great taste tester! He gave this recipe a thumbs up! If you want your kids to drink green juice, blend in some dates into your Gorilla Milk. They will LOVE IT!
