Most mornings my breakfasts consist of a smoothie. It is my way of getting in some of the supplements I know I should be taking, but do not always wish to take in capsule form. I change the smoothies by using different fruits and variations on the ingredients. This recipe will give you enough smoothie for two people


  • 2 teaspoons Super EFA Liquid (Seroyal/Genestra) - Fish oil
  • 1 scoop ProBasics (Pure Encapsulations) - Whey and rice protein powder
  • 1 scoop MediClear (Thorne) - nutritional support for gastrointestinal integrity and detoxification
  • 1 squirt Folic Acid (Thorne)
  • 1 scoop Green Powder
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 to 1 ½ cups of Rice milk
  • ½ cup of plain yogurt
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 cup frozen fruit (black berries, organic strawberries, cherries, mango, blueberries, pineapple, etc)
  • ½ cup granola (optional) - it is my new addition for a bit of crunch

I start by putting in the rice milk and yogurt into the blender. Then I add the powders, EFA, folic acid, peanut butter and bananas, before mixing until smooth. Finally I put in the frozen fruit and blend again. Sometimes I have to add more rice milk to get it to blend.

This recipe can be altered for any food allergies - 
Dairy allergies - use soy or rice milk and yogurt
Nut allergies - you do not have to nut butter in the smoothie or use a nut you are not allergic to
Gluten allergy - use a gluten free granola or any gluten free cereal

Obviously there can be a considerable amount of sugar involved depending on what ingredients you choose to substitute. Be conscious of this and know that this is not a breakfast to have every morning, but is a good way to break of the monotony of our usual fair.
