A friend and I like to swap THM recipes, so today I’d like to share one of my favorites. It’s not original. It’s merely my adaptation from the THM book, but it’s delicious and, due to the glucomannan powder, very filling.
Creamy Mocha Smoothie (FP, E or S)
1 cup almond milk (FP or E) or coconut milk (S)
1/3 cup Greek yogurt or nonfat cottage cheese (FP or E) or lowfat cottage cheese (S)
1 scoop of protein powder—egg whites (FP or E) or whey (S)
1 tsp vanilla
~1/8 tsp sea salt
½ tsp glucomannan powder
2 T xylitol
1/8 cup cocoa powder
1 T flax meal
¼ tsp. any super green powder (i.e. spirulina or chlorella)
6 coffee ice cubes
1) Blend all but the ice.
2) Let rest 20 seconds to let the glucomannan gel.
3) Add coffee cubes.
