Who knew that you could make milk out of Sunflower seed? I’ve had the almond milk, the cashew milk, the soy, the hemp milk, etc. but last night was my first time trying anything with Sunflower seed milk. So after trying the Mango Lassi at Cru, sorry, but I’ll never be able to ever drink it any other way again. Sweetened with Agave and spiced with cinnamon and cardamom, it was honestly one of the most satisfying raw drinks I’ve ever tasted. Right up there with Juliano’s Chocolate shake. It was practically a meal in itself, really packing a punch of wholesome nutty protein. All of you people who think you can’t get protein from plant based foods, think again. I felt like running a marathon after drinking this. Oh, and thanks Kyler, for the generous serving. And for being patient with my multitude of questions.
Cru is located at 1521 Griffith Park Blvd in Silverlake- it’s practically on Sunset, just a few blocks east of where Santa Monica Blvd. connects. I was just trying to fuel up between watching a show at El Cid and happened to come across this gem. I plan to go back and sample the foodies. Will let you know when I do.
