After 2 days of enduring nausea after having shakes for breakfast (you can read about that here and here), I was determined not to let this get the better of me. I will find a shake that is low carb high fat and also agrees with me. I consulted my LCHF (aka banting) bible, The Real Meal Revolution, and found the Avocado and Raspberry shake recipe. I had all the ingredients so fingers were crossed and I proceeded to make it.
Avocado in a shake is not new to me. The Special One and I have been adding avo to our shakes for years now. They weren’t always low carb though. Anywhooo…lets get to that shake.
- 1/2 ripe avocado – pipped and peeled
- 100g frozen raspberries
- 100g extra thick greek yoghurt
- squeeze of lemon juice
- 1/2 cup ice blocks
- Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or smoothie maker and blitz.
I had high hopes for this smoothie especially after my disappointment with the Chocolate Fat Shake. On first tasting it, the tartness of the raspberries were coming through very strongly. I added 2 teaspoons of xylitol syrup and the other half of the avocado. Taste test number 2 – still quite tart. Added a bit more xylitol. Ah! Got the edge off the tartness and I was good to go. Gave The Special One a taste but it wasn’t sweet enough for him. More for me!!
It’s dinner time already and I’ve had no nausea or any other side effects (lol) from this shake. Yay! Only problem is that I’ve not got any raspberries left either 😦 Maybe I’ll try it with strawberries instead. I’ll let you know. Hmmm…maybe it’s time to do RMR hotcakes/pancakes again? 😉
