Yogi Bhajan's Fountain of Youth

By Siri Ved Kaur

For good health, youthful radiance, and to improve elimination, try this pureed fruit salad for breakfast. Raw almonds that are soaked in water and peeled are delicious, sweet, and easy to digest. I like to keep a jar of almonds soaking in the fridge, so I always have some handy for this quick breakfast or a fruit smoothie. I sometimes use raw sesame butter instead of sesame seeds.


15 raw almonds, soaked and peeled

2 small apples

2 small ripe bananas

1 large green bell pepper

3 tablespoons raw sesame seeds


Soak almonds in cold water overnight or for several hours. Remove skins (they will slip off easily).

Core apples and cut into quarters (do not pare).

Wash and remove stems from peppers but keep the seeds.

Place almonds, apples, bananas, peppers and sesame seeds in a blender jar.

Scrape the inner white from the peel of the bananas and add.

Blend or process all ingredients until pureed (you will need to pause every few seconds to press ingredients down).

Yield: 2 Servings
