Ever want a smoothie, but don’t want one packed with sugar that will leave you hungry in half an hour? For a filling snack or meal without the insulin spike, consider this delicious coconut based smoothie that is similar in taste and texture to a milkshake, but much more satisfying. It is even a fast on-the-go breakfast, and kids love it!
- 2 cups coconut milk
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons Gelatin Powder (our favorite- we use the collagen peptides form in smoothies since it doesn’t gel and is water soluble)
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 1 banana (optional)
- 2 or more egg yolks
- 1 cup ice
- flavor of choice: 1 TBSP organic cocoa powder, ½ cup strawberries, 1 tsp cinnamon, etc.)
- Put all ingredients into blender or Vitamix and blend until smooth.
- Wasn't that easy?!
Note on Egg Yolks: Many people feel uncomfortable using raw egg in any form. After much research, I feel comfortable giving my children raw egg yolks as long as I know and trust the source of the eggs, but as always, do your own research before consuming any food raw!
