Gluten Free Smoothie

Gluten Free Smoothie Recipe

This topic is still controversial, but evidence shows that in addition to the autoimmune disorder celiac disease, there is a milder form of gluten intolerance called non-celiac gluten sensitivity. If you suspect that gluten is causing symptoms such as GI distress, fatigue, joint pain, or headaches, see a professional to rule out a gluten sensitivity. If you know you are sensitive it is extremely important to completely avoid gluten in your diet for the rest of your life. Wheat flour is the main culprit, but processed foods contain many wheat additives. Fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies are free to be enjoyed in a gluten free diet, so bon appétit!

Basic Protein Smoothie

Basic Protein Smoothie Recipe

This smoothie can be made with any type of protein powder. Some choices are pea protein, whey protein, soy protein, or powdered egg white. Any flavor works, but vanilla or plain is recommended.

Vegan Protein Smoothie

Vegan Protein Smoothie Recipe

A vegan diet is a healthy way to eat and live, especially if careful attention is paid to getting “complete proteins” from foods. The human body will only use protein from food to build muscle if it contains all of the essential amino acids. Animal foods contain all of them in a similar proportion to that of our muscles so it is simple for the body to take them and build body tissue. Plant foods contain different ratios of amino acids, but it is easy to get them all if your diet contains a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Soy beans are one of few plant foods that contain all the essential amino acids, so enjoy this delicious high protein smoothie recipe.

So break out of the blood sugar roller coaster cycle with a sweet yet high protein smoothie recipe. Whey or soy protein powders may be substituted for egg protein powder if desired. Also, try it with vanilla soy milk or rice milk.

Vanilla Soy Smoothie

Vanilla Soy Smoothie Recipe

Silken tofu makes a great base for smoothie recipes due to its ability to soften and absorb the flavor of fruits and other ingredients. This is a simple smoothie recipe that makes a great dessert while providing the amazing benefits of soy protein. Soy is one of the few plant sources of “complete protein,” meaning that it contains all the essential amino acids needed to repair and build muscle and tissues. Soy has also been shown to be helpful in preventing heart disease, especially when used to replace meat in the diet. It is easy to add soy to smoothies by using soft tofu, which adds very little flavor, a little texture, and a lot of healthy protein.
