  1. After reading the headline I thought for a couple seconds: “Oh my god, Monsanto is publishing a recipe at Mark’s blog!”

  2. I thought the same thing! Whenever I see “Roundup”, it conjures up such bad images with Monsanto …. all that changed when I saw the luscious smoothies 🙂

  3. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I desperately needed new smoothie recipes; leaving for school at 6:30 A.M. doesn’t give me much of an opportunity to whip up scrambled eggs. These smoothies look like they’ll do the trick. Thanks again!

  4. It’s not quite keto or paleo but if you eat dairy, two parts whole fat milk added to one part whole fat cottage cheese and whipped with a stick blender makes a pretty good smoothie base. You can add fruit for more sweetening in addition to the milk sugars, and/or vanilla, nut butter, coffee, or my favorite, baker’s cocoa (the unsweetened stuff.) I make it the night before I have to be up way too early and need something to grab and go without waking anyone.

    1. Thank you! Oddly, enough I can’t eat coconut, but can eat dairy. I’m the opposite of paleo. I didn’t click on all the recipes but the ones I did had coconut milk.

  5. When I feel the need for a shake or smoothie I always use the collagen fuel. Vanilla is my favorite. So easy to throw in berries to change it up a bit. My first choice will always be to sit down and eat a meal, like the giant ribeye with spinach and mushrooms that I just enjoyed for lunch. But it’s nice to have some options for the days that time is limited.

  6. Although I prefer to eat my calories/meals, I have to say the photography in this post is really beautiful.

  7. So… I always use yoghurt as a base. About 3/4 cup yoghurt, two eggs, splash vanilla, scoop of collagen hydrosylate, frozen fruit and truvia is why my kids drink — mine’s similar except that I trade the sweetener and fruit for chia seeds, but I’m not trying to win any awards for palatability. I know that Paleo is anti-milk, but you’d think some of the Keto recipes would mention yoghurt.
