Paleo Egg Nog Smoothie
I found this on efficientgains.com
1/2 cup whole fat coconut milk
1/4 cup milk (cow, goat, almond, whatever)
2 pastured egg yolks [personally I'd add the whites in too]
1 tsp maple syrup (honey also works)
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 frozen banana
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (35g) OPTIONAL
1. In blender, combine 2 egg yolks, pinch of salt, and vanilla, and agave. Blend until well combined and a bit of volume has been achieved.
2. Next add coconut milk, milk, and nutmeg. Blend until well combined. If you’re using protein powder, add now and blend until smooth.
3. Next add chunks of frozen banana. Blend until it reaches the desired consistency.
4. Pour, serve, and enjoy!
5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106 lbs. Resetting with the 21-day challenge.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
