Megan’s Comments:

We have had smoothie fever around here lately. The best part of smoothie season is if you do not feel like taking the time to make a delicious dessert, you can make a dessert smoothie in half the time and it hits that sweet spot.

I was really feeling like some key lime pie, but I was really not feeling like making one. And THIS happened. Wonderful summertime smoothie for all.

Add more/less stevia depending on how sweet you like it. You can also add more leafy greens if you really want to pack a punch.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a fantastic recipe for a breakfast smoothie or an after school smoothie for the kids.  You have great fats with the coconut milk and the avocado.  You have loads of anti-oxidant phytonutrients in the spinach and lime.  You have great flavor in the stevia, banana bone broth protein and vanilla.

I changed Megan’s original recipe and took out the sugar sources (raw honey and a banana) and added the super tasty banana bone broth protein (which is flavored with monk fruit and stevia) and a little more avocado (1 full instead of 1/2).  This significantly reduced the carb count and made this a low-carb, ketogenic recipe that helps that is loaded with collagen protein for the gut, joints and skin.

Soaking the cashews is advantageous as it helps to remove the phytic acids and enzyme inhibitors that block nutrient absorption.  Try this great smoothie out and let us know how you enjoyed it!

  1. I know this sounds silly but I LOVE this shake and make it all the time. I had a printed out copy of the recipe that I would go by. But I lost that and had to look it up again. My original printed copy said 3 scoops of the banana protein powder and now this one says 1 scoop!?! Did the recipe change?

    1. I would say just go by how many servings you are going to consume 20 grams of protein is perfect for one serving. If you drink the whole thing, use one scoop, if you’re going to split it 2 or three ways, add in 2-3 scoops of the protein!
