    Recommend a smoothie

    I eat bacon and eggs or an omelet each morning and it's getting old. I'd like to mix it up some days with a high fat, low carb smoothie as a breakfast substitute. What's in your morning smoothie?

    1/2 banana, 1 cup berries, protein powder, coconut milk and coconut oil and bee pollen. 42 g carbs but mmmmm good. Its too hot here to do bacon and eggs in the summer. makes about 16 ounces

    I like berries in my smoothies, so I generally only drink them after exercise or around dinner time. Mine are pretty simple:

    - coconut milk kefir
    - raw spinach
    - raw kale
    - frozen berries from Costco (Blackberries, Rasberries, Blueberries)

    I've started adding:

    - protein powder
    - L-Glutamine
    - Creatine

    If this is after more intense exercise I'll also add a banana.

    I use a Vitamix too really disintegrate the spinach and kale until I get a green liquid - then I add the berries.

    I don't do smoothies on the regular, but I came up with a couple slightly unconventional but completely awesome ones...

    2 strips bacon, fried
    1 large banana
    1/4c. almond butter
    1c. milk (I had vanilla almond milk in the fridge)
    1Tbsp. maple syrup
    A good dash of cinnamon
    A few ice cubes

    Also:
    2 strips bacon, fried
    1/4c. almond butter
    1c. milk
    2 medjool dates, pitted
    drizzle of balsamic vinegar
    splash of vanilla

    Mouth. Watering.

    Edit: Should be obvious, but fry the bacon first.

    Lean Body Chocolate with a banana and a cup of blueberries and a couple of ice cubes. Simple, works for me, along with a 3 day a week fast total body workout.
