I’ve always had a sweet tooth, so when I started cutting way back on sugar to decrease my inflammation and insulin, I knew I needed some alternatives.
This smoothie has become a favorite in my house for kids and grownups alike.
It has a great healthy fat to improve satiety, plenty of natural sweetness and fiber from the fruit, and the collagen adds some protein. (Remember, FFP: Fat, Fiber, Protein helps balance your hormones.)
Now, before you go drinking this all the time, I want to remind you to look at it as a treat, not a meal replacement.
This easy, dairy-free, grain-free, paleo recipe makes 2-3 smoothies.
- 1 can coconut milk (full fat)
- 1+ cup pineapple (or mango or combined!)
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 scoop collagen
- Ice if you want it extra cold
- Topping: shredded coconut
Let me know what you think of it!
