This is one recipe for a healthy smoothie I always go back to when I have all the ingredients. When I don’t, I just don’t use them 🙂 A word of caution, I am not that great with measurements when it comes to food. I eyeballed what I was putting in, so the measurements are approximate.
Don’t forget to read below the recipe for my notes about this healthy smoothie!
This makes two servings, or in our family, one big serving for me and two little ones for the girls 🙂
2 generous handfuls of frozen fruit
about 12 oz of milk
1/2 tsp of molasses
1/4 tsp of chia seeds
1/4 tsp of kelp powder
1 TBS of peanut butter
1 raw egg
Blend everything together and enjoy promptly! I would not store this even in the fridge, so whatever is left gets discarded. Otherwise known as, mommy drinks it.
We do buy majority of our food organic, so everything in this list is organic. I get bags of frozen organic fruit at Costco.
We only drink raw milk at this point and I get it at Artichoke Dairy in West Newbury, MA.
Molasses add a touch of sweetness to the drink and are actually good for you! Molasses are a rich source of iron, B vitamins, folate, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Read more.
Chia seeds have recently come out as a new superfood and you can read more here. The only thing with seeds is that not everyone can digest them well. So using less is probably a better idea than using more. Here is another great post on all the benefits of chia seeds from Jen Reviews.
Kelp is a great source of iodine to support healthy thyroid function. Read more here. In this small amount, you can’t actually taste it in the smoothie, which is a big plus for me.
We get our eggs at Tendercrop Farm. I would not use a store-bought for eating raw. Again, you can’t taste it in the smoothie.
