Does anybody have recipes for breakfast shakes not using the protein powder?

  • I am a poor med student studying in the Caribbean and can't afford to ship it here!

    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
    1/4 avocado
    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.

      So are you not following the no dairy (avoid the evil 6) plan that Ignite suggests?

      Nope. I like dairy. Organic 1/2 & 1/2 in my coffee, good cheese and organic yogurt.
