NOTE: To make this recipe Candida Detox friendly, skip the berries and add a bunch of lemon juice or substitute (some of) the water for my Detox Lemonade instead :) It's yummy and it works!
This smoothie recipe, as is, 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. For the patient with severe symptoms or diagnoses (like fibromyalgia, severe constipation, auto-immune disease, etc) it may take longer to get the yeast under control and the liver filtering properly. IT IS BEST TO WAIT until your body can handle the extra sugar, YES, even from berries. Fruit IS very healthy, just not good for us when yeast is growing out of control in our guts :) Sugar is sugar when it comes to yeast. Avoiding it for a time (and that length of time is different for everyone) is a TEMPORARY FAST in order to allow your body to heal.
3 cups Liquid: water or unsweetened almond or coconut or hemp milk
2 scoops LOVE and PEAS - sugar free (available through my online store at wholesale)
1 scoop NATURE'S HARVEST (available through my online store at wholesale)
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 large handful mixed leafy greens
2 Tbsp unsweetened almond or cashew butter
2 Tbsp raw/virgin coconut oil
Optional: RAW bee pollen, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes, hemp seeds, maca powder, l-glutamine powder, collagen powder, etc
*You can replace (some of) the water with my DETOX LEMONADE for a sweet tart treat, even if you are doing berries!
Add all ingredients to high powered blender, add a few cubes of ice if necessary, and enjoy as a meal replacement or snack!
