Here’s a low-glycemic breakfast or snack for you. Similar to the chocolate pudding I posted previously, this recipe skips the banana and uses a little stevia to sweeten. Also, we add a little protein and good nutrition with the collagen and egg yolks (only use the best quality eggs from free-range chickens that are organically fed–crack into a cup first to inspect as the yolk should stay intact with no odor). If you are not eating eggs the eggs yolks could be left out. A quarter cup of berries could be substituted for the cocoa powder. That’s the nice thing about smoothies–you can really mix it up.
1/2 ripe avocado (skin firm but gives a little, inside still light green without brown)
1/3 to 1/2 cup water or zucchini “water”
1-2 tsp. raw organic cocoa powder
1-2 Tbsp. Great Lakes collagen powder
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Place all ingredients in a blender container except egg yolks and stevia. Blend well. Add egg yolks and blend by pulsing a few times–proteins in egg yolks supposedly can be damaged by blending so I take the precaution of adding them last and then blending briefly until just mixed. Taste and add stevia to taste.
