I got to thinking that, with all the hand crafted goodies we make here, some might wonder what we eat. I've mentioned our food allergies and sensitivities before. The list is daunting. Here's what I work with:
Mama Moon: gluten. That's it. It might even be just the pesticides or GMOs in conventional wheat. Either way though, I'm the easy one in our bunch.
Mr. Hockey: gluten, dairy, rice, and perhaps eggs. And we're waiting on the results of an allergy test to confirm. So it could get easier or trickier!
Lovebug: she's outgrown her allergies to dairy, banana, avocado and egg white. She still can't eat wheat or even touch anything with gluten (dog treats, play dough, stickers etc), potato, corn, rice, oat and all other grains, apple, strawberry, and new additions to the list are mushrooms and grapes because they give her an FPIES style reaction.
Add to your regular (get that? No turbo turtle charged blender needed here) blender:
1 chopped banana
Almond milk up to the 1.5 cup line
1/4 cup all natural peanut butter (I like the whole foods 365 brand. Inexpensive and real).
1 heaping tablespoon hemp protein powder
Honey to taste
I used the purée setting on my blender. I have high and low settings, pulse and continuous. Purée is on low and the first continuous speed. Blend until combined and smooth (no banana chunks). This will fill a regular tall glass and has around 20 grams of protein. And it tastes like a peanut butter honey sandwich.
If anyone wants to send me a fancy schmancy blender (ha!) I'll make my own nut milks and butters and sneak kale in here and report back!
What are your favorite smoothies?
