If you are on a Candida Detox, you do not want to eat ANY sugar (even fruit) the 1st month or so. Also note that the dietary changes are only 1 part of winning the battle over Candidiasis. LEARN MORE ABOUT CANDIDA OVERGROWTH HERE.
This smoothie recipe is for the person who is either not battling Candida overgrowth OR the patient I've cleared to start adding small amounts of sugar from low-glycemic index foods like berries and sweet potatoes. If you have Candida overgrowth (which MANY people do!), we TYPICALLY start with NO SUGAR/NO CARBS, NO MUSHROOMS, NO FRUIT, NO ALCOHOL, NO COFFEE, NO YEAST etc for ~1 month. We add berries, grapefruit, some quinoa and sweet potatoes back in once your symptoms are improving (i.e: bloating is decreasing, headaches ceasing, energy increasing, probiotic dosage significantly decreasing, etc). For the person with severe symptoms to begin with (like fibromyalgia, severe constipation or weight gain, auto-immune disease, etc) it may take longer to get the yeast under control and the liver filtering properly...so IT IS BEST TO WAIT until your body can handle the extra sugar...YES, even from berries. Fruit IS a health food, just not good for us when yeast is growing out of control in our guts :) It's a TEMPORARY FAST.

ALL of my recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free, and MOST are Candida-detox-friendly because that's what most people I get to work with struggle with. My goal is to help "feed" the body of Christ- spiritually, physically and emotionally by teaching you how to cook, eat, think and live according to God's Word.
