Smoothie Recipes

Smoothies are so wonderfully easy and versatile!  There really is no wrong way to make a smoothie, other then to add harmful ingredients. 

We generally eat/drink them a few times a week.  They are great for 'on-the-go' meals and 'ahh, we slept in and we're going to be late for Sunday School!!' breakfasts. 

The basic recipe:
Raw Milk (canned coconut milk is also good)

Raw egg yolks (make sure they are pastured and not factory farmed)

Natural Sweetener (generally maple syrup, honey, stevia, raisins, dates)

Flavor (fruit, frozen or fresh, cocoa powder, vanilla)

Any 'add ins' that you might want to mask, but get into the diet

Put all the ingredients in a blender, blend well and serve.  It's that easy!  

Our 3 favorites are:

1.  Strawberry Smoothie

2 Cups Milk
1 Cup yogurt or kefir
3 raw egg yolks
1 Tbls honey
1/2 Cup frozen strawberries

2.  Chocolate Milk Smoothie

2 Cups Milk
1 Cup Yogurt or kefir 
3 raw egg yolks
1 Tbls honey
2 Tbls cocoa powder
1 Tbls coconut oil (optional)
Banana (optional)

3. Vanilla Milkshake Smoothie

2 Cups Milk
1 Cup Yogurt or kefir
3 raw egg yolks
2 Tbls Maple Syrup
2 tsp vanilla

Of course, there are many varieties and other additions.  I find it easy to keep things on hand for the above smoothies at all times.  You can get creative and have a lot of fun with this.  And you can even add small amounts of new tastes to already loved flavors, to ease the transition for kids (and adults).
