Enjoy this as a breakfast, snack, pre- or post-workout drink or meal replacement.
1 1/2 cups water
1 Tbsp raw carob or cacao powder
2 handful mixed leafy greens
2 Tbsp raw coconut or MCT oil
1/2 large avocado
1 scoop Nature's Sunshine Collagen Powder
Liquid vanilla stevia, monkfruit, or Swerve, to taste
1 cup ice
Optional: 1 Tbsp Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (to get some SCT oils in)
Optional: Banana (if Dr. Jana has approved it for YOUR Candida Detox or modified Keto Diet)
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. And I got more than my daily requirement of minerals, good fats and folate in 1 smoothie!
