    2 Cups Milk Kefir

    1 wicked huge tbs of Almond butter
    1/4 Banana
    1 Tbs Vanilla Extract

    tsp or so cocoa powder
    A few egg yolks
    Scoop of whey (If I have some - not often)

    Both of these sound wonderful - I will have to give similar versions a try! I think coconut milk as a base is a winner amongst most of us. So simple, delicious, healthy, and cheap!

    How often do you eat smoothies and would you enjoy primal smoothie recipes?
    I have not had one in a very long time but yes, I do enjoy a good smoothie.

    It's too easy to take in too much calorically in a drink. I realize that with enough fat, that's not an issue, but historically smoothies have proven to start a binge with me, so I stay away. Y'all go on ahead and enjoy them, but I know my limits.

    Grok didnt have frying pans, ovens, silverware, or refrigerators either. Some things make nutrition easier. And, whey protein powder cant really be chewed.......

    I pondered the idea of a primal smoothie recently, but decided it would be gross. If enough people assured me that their primal smoothies are yummy, I would totally try one, if for no other reason than that my blender is one of my favorite toys. I used to do smoothies EVERY SINGLE DAY when I was doing "Eat To Live" (a very low-fat vegan diet). They were half fruit, half veggies, with a little fish oil and/or hemp seeds thrown in. Very yummy but WAY too high carb to be Primal, and I can't imagine the same smoothie being yummy anymore if I left out most of the fruit. But the two recipes posted in this thread actually sound like they could be edible. I want to know how many carbs are in them, but I'm too lazy to crunch the numbers. Oh well, lol!

    I make them for the groklings often, and enjoy a small glass as a treat. I also love them as a post workout recovery meal, or when I'm feeling ill and don't want solids!

    Our faves:

    1 can of coconut milk
    a handful of frozen mango
    a few slices of fresh pineapple
    3 handfuls of baby spinach
    1 handful of parsley
    a splash of real vanilla extract

    And:

    1 cup of heavy cream
    half a frozen banana
    a handful of mixed berries
    3 handfuls of baby spinach
    splash of real vanilla extract

    (This one really is dessert to me, it's like a gorgeous milkshake!)
