We have started having smoothies on a regular basis.  They can be low carb, so filling, and just loaded with good, healthy things for your body–especially if you use all organic ingredients.  In my attempt to reduce my carb and sugar intake, and cut costs, this recipe is now my daily breakfast.  In addition, we have a “family breakfast smoothie” about one day a week, “desert smoothies” once or twice a week, and “snack smoothies” about once a week.  Sometimes we have a smoothie just because we want one.  They are just so incredibly delicious and incredibly healthy!

Organic Fruit and Protein Smoothie

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen fruit or fruit blend
  • 1 banana (optional)
  • 1/3 cup raw milk
  • 1 egg yolk, raw
  • 1 Tbs. whey
  • 2 Tbs. flax seed
  • 1 Tbs. honey OR several drops of Stevia liquid concentrate (I prefer the Stevia to cut carbs)

Combine all ingredients in blender, and blend away!  Enjoy immediately.

NOTES:  If you need to use fresh fruit, add several cubes of ice to the blender to give it the extra cold, smoothie texture.  The great thing about this recipe is that you can play around with amounts of ingredients and types of fruits until you find what you like!
