About Katie ~
For the past 5+ years or so I had considered myself a healthy eater, trying to eat according to the government’s food pyramid and consuming a low fat diet. Yet I found myself feeling run down and tired a lot.
Fed up with feeling low-energy, and having been tested by the doctors and told everything is normal and it must be in my head, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I cut out white flour, white sugar and focused on eating more whole foods. Read More…
- 2 bananas sliced and frozen
- ¼ cup oats
- ¼ cup peanut butter
- ¾ cup milk (raw milk, or fresh coconut milk)
- Put oats in blender and blend until they’re powdery. Add remaining ingredients and blend until there are no more chunks of frozen banana. Garnish with fresh banana slices if desired.
- ¾ cup blueberries and blackberries mixed together
- ¾ cup plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon honey (optional if your berries are tart)
- 1 tablespoon wheat germ (optional, I left this out of my smoothie)
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 sliced banana (frozen)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Enjoy
- ¼ cup pumpkin puree
- 1 banana sliced (and preferably frozen if you like a thick smoothie)
- ½ cup milk
- a dash of cinnamon to taste
- 1 teaspoon of raw, local honey (optional)
- Combine all ingredients and blend on high until it is smooth. You may add more milk 1 Tablespoon at a time as desired if it is too thick.
- 1 banana cut in slices and frozen
- 4-6 strawberries, cut up (freeze them if you like a really thick smoothie)
- ¼ cup oats
- ½ teaspoon vanilla (try making your own homemade vanilla extract)
- ¾ cup milk (more or less to suit your tastes) (raw milk or coconut milk can be used)
- Put the oats in the blender and let it run until they are ground up to be a powder. Add the remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. You may want to add more milk to thin out the smoothie as needed. I ended up adding 1 cup of milk in all.
- ½ cup diced mango
- 1 sliced banana (preferably frozen)
- ¼ cup milk (preferablypasture raised milk)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
