Celer-Berry Smoothie (low carb, sugar free, THM-FP)

This snazzy little drink started out as a way to incorporate more celery into my daily menu.  I had been reading about the anti-inflammatory properties of this crunchy little veggie and found  lots of other great info on it’s wide range of benefits.  I don’t mind the taste of celery but if you, like my husband, can’t stand the taste of it, this is a great way of including it without even noticing.

Unlike some of the thick, Icy Frappas that I love to make, this one is thinner and easier to drink down in a hurry.  It is a great breakfast on busy mornings and keeps me fueled for hours.  The basic recipe is low in fat and carbs but you can easily add some MCT or Coconut oil or a different kind of fruit to change it up a bit.

While this might not be a beautiful, frilly, fancy dessert, I actually make this more than any other recipe I have on this site.  I hope that you, too will try it and love it!

For THMamas, this recipe is a FP but can be adjusted to any fuel type.

    • according to my calculations… the almond milk has 2.5, protein powder has .5 and chia seeds have 1… hmmm, that is 4. I will have to go back to the program that I plugged it all into to get the numbers and double check it.

  1. Hi Rhonda, you’ve mentioned one stalk of celery in the recipe but in the picture that has the ingredients in the blender, I see only on rib from the stalk of the celery. So, I wanted to find out before making this recipe if the recipe calls for one stalk of celery or just a rib from one stalk of celery? Sorry, I know I should follow the written recipe but just wanted to make sure if I am doing it right. Thank you in advance!
