Recipe Story

My oldest son's wife is from Mexico. She introduced him to the wonders of Amaranth. She explained to me the uses of amaranth in Mexico, and how to use it in a shake. That inspired me, as I have a protein shake every morning. This is my adaptation of a shake incorporating that ingredient, and using good fats and flavor.
