NOTE: If you are in the first part of a Candida Detox (and I haven't cleared you on adding berries back into your diet yet), then just skip the berries and add the rest.
It's still yummy...and berries are coming back soon enough. Remember: it's a fast, not a diet ;)
I named this the Sweet Tart Superfood Smoothie because it's the perfect balance of sweet (from the vanilla protein powder) + tart (from the Detox tea/Lemonade).
You are getting MORE THAN 15 servings of fruits & veggies if you drink this whole smoothie (or half if you split this recipe with someone).
BOTH the IONIC MINERALS & LOVE & PEAS (sugar free) PROTEIN POWDER can be purchased at wholesale through my ONLINE STORE. The Superfood blend came from Costco.
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.
3 cups Liquid: water, unsweetened almond or coconut milk or hemp milk
2 scoops LOVE and PEAS-sugar free (click to purchase through my online store at wholesale)
1 scoop NATURE'S HARVEST (click to purchase through my online store at wholesale)
1 cup Frozen berries
1 large Handful greens (arugula, spinach, kale)
2 Tbsp UNSWEETENED almond butter
2 Tbsp Virgin coconut oil
Optional: RAW bee pollen, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, hemp seeds, maca powder, l-glutamine powder, etc
*You can also replace the water with Pau d Arco Tea
OR try half & half WATER/DETOX LEMONADE for a sweet tart treat!
Add all ingredients to high powered blender, add a few cubes of ice if necessary, and enjoy as a meal replacement or snack!
NOTE: If you are in the very beginning of a Candida Detox, skip the berries and add a bunch of lemon juice instead :) It's yummy and it works!
Add all ingredients in order listed to high speed blender. Add more or less ice and pumpkin pie spice for desired thickness and pumpkin pie flavor.
To cut the pumpkin, simply quarter it, keeping seeds intact. Then turn each quarter of the pumpkin on its side and cut off the skin (see photo). Use the same technique for a larger pumpkin and add ~1 cup of pumpkin (+seeds) to your smoothie.
Ok, so YES we are using almond butter instead of peanut butter (because peanuts tend to be high mold carriers…not good for those with Candida overgrowth; can’t eat mold when you’re trying to kill mold right?!)…health is more important. You could also sub cashew butter, etc so long as it’s unsweetened (no sugar if you are on a Candida Detox).
…I’m using CAROB instead of cocoa…but you CAN USE CACAO or COCOA…whatever
breakfast, snack, pre-workout, post-workout, meal replacement, bored with your Candida Detox and just need something new…just enJOY!
1 cup Water
1-1.5 cup Unsweetened almond or coconut milk
2 Tbsp Carob powder
2 HUGE spoonfuls UNSWEETENED almond butter
2 spoonfuls coconut oil
1 scoop Egg White protein powder (I use NOW brand, unflavored/unsweetened)
1 scoop COLLATRIM PLUS powder* (available at wholesale through my ONLINE STORE)
1 handful UNSWEETENED shredded coconut
2-3 Pitted dates (use stevia or xylitol as your sweetener if you are on Candida Detox)
1-2 handfuls Ice
Optional: RAW Bee pollen
Optional: GLUTAMINE POWDER (heals gut; repairs cells; great if you have had leaky gut, Candida overgrowth, food allergies, etc)
Optional: 1/2 Avocado (adds creamy texture, more filling, added nutrition, healthy fats)
Optional: Banana (only if you are NOT on Candida Detox)
Add all ingredients to high-power blender or food processor and serve chilled. I add every ingredient listed and it makes me feel AWESOME & full for a few hours!! This is a great breakfast, lunch or especially a pre-workout “meal” to get you through a good sweat!
*NOTE: COLLATRIM PLUS can be used to assist weight loss in a healthy way. It does not curb appetite or do any damage to the body like some “weight-loss” products on the market. I personally add it because the collagen is so good for our skin, bones & other connective tissues. My joints need it! My body appreciates the extra lean protein, too
Add all ingredients into high powered blender in order shown, blend on high, serve chilled! Makes 2 medium or a little more than 1 large 32 oz smoothie
If you make this as I have written, this is 100% safe for those of you on Candida Detoxes!! woohoo!!
