Does anybody have recipes for breakfast shakes not using the protein powder?
I usually start the morning with a breakfast smoothie using something like below. I use a Nutribullet to blend making about a 24oz smootie, though any blender would probably work.
1.5 handfuls of Kale
3-4 strawberries (if frozen, slightly defrosted)
1/2 cup berries (if frozen, slightly defrosted)
1 tbsp. Organic coconut oil
1 tbsp. Chia seed
1 tbsp. Organic Flax Seed Meal
1 tbsp. Cacao Nibs
1 tbsp. Maca powder
8-10 raw almonds
5-6 raw walnuts
Add water and blend until smooth. If too thick, add water until desired consistency.
I tend to eat "Green" Smoothies similiar to what Willywalter posted:
~2 cups of greens (Kale, spinach, swiss chard, beet greens, mustard greens, collards, etc... whatever is dark and leafy)
1 banana--can freeze before hand or not
2 tbsp Cacao powder
1 tbsp Maca Powder
1 tsp ginger (fresh or powder)
2 tbsp Chia seed or flax seed or hemp seed (or any combination)
2-3 pitted dates depending on the fruit being used, more for sweetness
1-2 cup frozen fruit, pineapple, berries, mango...whatever you like
1 cup komucha or 1 tsp Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
water to the consistency you like....
Its a lot of smoothie so i drink it throughout the day
occasionally i add raw nuts as well.
I don't like protein powder because it is powder not real food and is expensive. the cheap ones are full of chemicals and other things I don't want. Here is my fav breakfast: .5 cup plain yogurt, low fat or whole milk, .25 cup hemp seeds, .5 cup raw shelled sunflower seeds, . 5 cups fresh blueberries (any berry) or 1/2 bananna. Mix and eat. Sometimes when my allergies are not making my nose run, I will add .5 cup of high-fiber organic cereal instead of the fruit.
