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.
Into a high powered blender add:
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup water
1 stalk of Celery, washed
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
3 to 4 frozen strawberries
1 scoop of unsweetened Protein Powder
4 Doonks THM pure stevia powder
1 tsp chia seeds
Blend on high for 30 seconds or until desired consistency is reached. Serves One.
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.
