green breakfast protein smoothie #2

greensmoothie2Having a smoothie for breakfast is now part of my usual routine. It’s quick, healthy, a great way to get in a lot of greens and when trying to follow the AIP protocol diet for auto-immune disease, well, let’s face it there’s not much left for breakfast unless you want last night’s left overs.¬† Each day my smoothie is similar but different depending on what fruit and veg is to hand. Here is the link to green breakfast protein smoothie #1

Here is todays:

Blend together until smooth:

  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 kiwi fruit
  • 1 frozen banana
  • a few frozen mango chunks
  • wedge rockmelon
  • 2 cups english spinach
  • 1/2 cup coconut kefir yoghurt (great for gut health – or omit or use regular coconut yoghurt)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or milk of your choice or coconut water)
  • 2 scoops protein powder (omit to be AIP)
  • 1 Tbsp buckinis (my kids thought I said bikini’s!!) (or other crunch)

Pour into glasses and sprinkle with pomegranates or berries for some colour and texture.

Serves 2-3
