Smoothies are such a great, quick breakfast. My kids love them. At one point in the video, my daughter (2 years old) realized what I was doing. You’ll all the sudden hear her saying “shake, shake, shake” over and over (what you can’t see is her bouncing around in excitement….my own little tigger)

We use approximately these amounts per serving:

2 whole eggs

1-2 Tbs coconut oil

1-2 cups liquid- raw milk, coconut milk, kefir, yogurt, and cream are all awesome options

1 pinch of salt

1/2 tsp -1 tsp vanilla (not imitation)

ice or frozen fruit

The coconut oil is important because it give you great sustained energy, keeps you feeling full longer, and is full of lauric acid. We don’t use any frozen fruit in our shakes- choosing instead to let the natural sweetness come through. If you are used to your smoothies tasting like melted ice cream…… start reducing the fruit as soon as possible. Also- increase the amount of lacto-fermented foods in your diet. This will help reduce your sweet tooth. Remember- taste is a LEARNED response. Exposure is the key to adjusting your taste buds.
