We so love those smoothies with lots of yogurt and fruit and even a little soy protein powder thrown in for that added boost. We will eat smoothies for breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack… heck, we have even had them for dessert. But the Soy Free/Dairy Free me wasn’t making them anymore and the little ones started to revolt.
I had to get REALLY creative here though. Because I couldn’t replace the milk and yogurt with soy, and I wasn’t sure what would taste good or just make the smoothie grainy. I have tried rice protein and rice milk before and it just does not have that same smooth texture that we all know and love. It took some doing, but I finally got a great consistency.
1 can coconut milk
2 cups mango chunks (frozen)
2 Tbs maple syrup
1 1/2 cups almond milk
*Put in a blender and blend until smooth.*
Now I realize that none (and I mean none) of these things grown within 800 miles of my Pacific NW home. Sigh… but I can’t win them all. And man, it’s good!
