Low FODMAP Strawberry Protein Smoothie for Breakfast, Snack or Post Workout
Low FODMAP Strawberry Protein Smoothie
Attack your day with this delicious, nutritious and low FODMAP protein smoothie which can also be used as a post workout recovery smoothie. I prefer to use NOW® Sports Eggwhite Protein Powder unflavored (to avoid Xylitol, which is in the flavored powders). If you can tolerate dairy I encourage you to try their whey protein powder as it is even better for muscle recovery because of the naturally occurring lactoglobulin, lactalbumin, immunoglobulins and glycomacro peptides which has been shown to enhance protein synthesis. Either way this protein smoothie will ensure a speedy recovery!
Add ice to blender with 1/2 cup of almond milk and crush ice until it is in fine pieces (approximately 45-60 seconds if you start with crushed ice or 60-90 seconds if you start with cubes).
While ice is being crushed, remove stems from strawberries.
When ice is ready, add fruit and blend for approximately 45 seconds to 1 minute.
Pour into glass and ENJOY!
Create your own fruit smoothie with a combination of FODMAP friendly fruit such as: ¼ cup raspberries ¼ cup blueberries or a ½ cup applesauce with 1 tsp of cinnamon and ¼ tsp of nutmeg for an apple cinnamon smoothie! Either variety makes 1 serving.
