Yogurt Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie, with hemp and why I gave up my protein powder

Yogurt Pumpkin Pie Protein Smoothie, with bananas and hemp

I spent most of my life never reading or understanding a label. I think in the past most manufacturers counted on consumers buying their products without understanding what they put in it. If we knew then what we know now? Would we have eaten healthier? We would have so many autoimmune diseases? 

Skinny GF & Sugar Free Chocolate Banana Protein Smoothie

Day 11 of the following the Gluten-Free Homemaker's August Sugar Free Challenge and I'm craving chocolate, but I'm doing pretty good.  Chocolate and cookies have always been the toughest things for me to give up.  and I love to read, and when I read I crave a cookie...strange but true. Anyway,  I'm seeing some weight loss already and I have less bloating, so it's definitely working!!   xx

Skinny Gluten Free Green Machine Smoothie!!

I'm crazy for smoothies!! I think that a smoothie is so much healthier than juicing, especially when you have Celiac.   You keep all of the fiber that a juicer removes and we need as much natural fiber as we can get.  I used to love Naked's Green Machine,  but it's not gluten free, so I made this one up with similar ingredients and it turned out awesome.  

Use whatever fruit is seasonal or canned if that's all you have.  I love any combination!!  

Skinny Gluten Free Tazo Passion Smoothie

 Isn't it beautiful?
 I am going to try making it into popsicles too!

I wish I could think of something sexy for the title of this one because it will make you moan...seriously!  So cool and delicious and satisfying!!  lol!     I'm a Seattle girl who relocated to Florida where you have to take off your clothes a lot or you sweat to death!  So smoothies and rice cakes are my new best friends.

Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients- add to blender in this order

2 cups Crushed ice
1/4 cup frozen mixed berries
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 scoop whey protein powder
3-4 tsp Stevia or Splenda to taste

2 cups cold Tazo Passion Tea or enough to fill 3/4 of your blender and no more

Blend very well

GF Skinny Protein Drink Breakfast

Happy Monday!! We drink protein drinks almost every morning, it's just so much easier and healthier than cooking something or eating cereal.  You can put lots of different healthy fruits and vegetables in the blender or your juicer and you will be thrilled with the results!  Much cheaper than buying Naked or other similar brands and just as good!

In the blender-

I add in this order

2 cups crushed ice
2 scoops GF protein powder- I love Body Fortress
6 packets or to taste of Stevia or Splenda or agave
1 tsp pure GF vanilla-optional but I think it really makes it taste great
1Tbl Chia or flaxseed meal (fiber and antioxidants!)
1/2 cup plain unsweetened GF yogurt
2 cups Fruit or vegies, diced.  I use any combination of apples, oranges, pineapple, berries, bananas, papaya, mango or throw in some veggies- carrots, celery, fresh spinach (you can't taste it) cucumbers, ginger, just about anything in the fridge is great
2-3 cups as needed of unsweetened almond milk or regular 1% milk or juice
Only fill to 3/4 of your capacity so there is room to expand!

Blend till smooth! 

This one is my Pina Colada.  I added an orange and some sliced pineapple.  It was scrumptious!!

I will post my green one for you soon.  Have a great day!
