Low Carb Smoothie

Low Carb Smoothie

This is a great low-carb smoothie. Use this as a go-to recipe for the EDGE meal plans for breakfast-on-the-go. Coconut milk contains a beneficial fat called lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid that’s easily absorbed and used by the body for energy. Chia seeds (soaked in 3 tablespoons of water for 10 minutes), contain essential fatty acids, plus vitamins A, B, E and D and minerals including iron, magnesium, niacin and thiamine. The nut butter adds some healthy fat, plus needed creaminess and texture.  (I recommend that you avoid peanut butter.) The cacao nibs will actually improve muscle structure and enhance nerve function due to their nutritional content. Of course, we’ve all heard about the benefits of avocado and coconut oil and all their “healthy fats.”  They also give this smoothie a delicious, creamy texture.  Finally, top it off with some cinnamon, which is great for blood sugar, and you are ready to go!

Morning Workout Protein Smoothie

Morning Workout Protein Smoothie

This is a simple protein smoothie that satisfies sweet cravings and keeps you full for hours. This is a great pre-workout smoothie if you plan to hit it pretty hard in the morning.

There’s a lot of “vanilla” flavor in this recipe, as well as some “optional Stevia drops,” so it can be pretty sweet depending on what brand of protein powder you use, so you may want to omit the Stevia drops. You could also opt to use unflavored protein powder and include the Stevia drops.

Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie

This smoothie offers tons of filling fiber and vitamin A, which supports the immune system and helps prevent skin from aging. Due to their relatively low glycemic index rating of 50, sweet potatoes can also help you lose weight by preventing blood sugar spikes after you eat, which can also help cut down on sugar and carb cravings.

Perfect for your morning meal, the “sweet potato pie” smoothie is low in sugar (the only sweetness comes naturally from the sweet potato). It’s also a great option for people who don’t love bananas. With a balance of protein, high-fiber carbohydrates, and healthy fats, this smoothie should become part of your breakfast meal rotation.

Note: Bake or steam a sweet potato ahead of time, so you can make this smoothie in minutes.
