Ok, so YES we are using almond butter instead of peanut butter (because peanuts tend to be high mold carriers and almonds provide better fat and nutrition than peanuts ). Peanuts are not good for those with Candida overgrowth because can’t eat mold when you’re trying to kill "mold" right?! You could also sub cashew butter, etc so long as it’s unsweetened (no sugar if you are on a Candida Detox).
Enjoy this as a breakfast, snack, pre- or post-workout drink or meal replacement.
1 cup water
1-1.5 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
2 Tbsp carob or cacao powder
1 large handful mixed leafy greens
2 large spoonsful unsweetened almond butter
2 large spoonsful virgin coconut oil
2 scoops COLLATRIM PLUS powder (available through my ONLINE STORE at wholesale)
1 handful unsweetened shredded coconut
2-3 pitted dates (use stevia, xylitol, Swerve or monkfruit if you are on Candida Detox)
1-2 handfuls ice
Optional: 1 scoop NOW FOODS unflavored/unsweetened egg white protein powder (for extra protein)
Optional: RAW Bee pollen
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. This was my life-saver breakfast in the 1st trimester of my pregnancy when I suddenly could NOT stomach eggs anymore. The Cacao gave me energy. The sweet was a nice, cool change that went down easy and held me over for about 3 hours.
*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 gut, skin, bones, joints & other connective tissues. My body appreciates thrives on the extra lean protein, too!
