Blueberries are a delicious and nutritious berry to use on any diet. They’re also delicious and full of antioxidants. That’s why it’s perfect for making smoothies with – it gives your smoothie a distinct flavor and lots of vitamins while only adding a small amount of sugar.
On a Paleo or AIP diet, it’s easy to rely on bananas in your smoothies as the thickening agent. But this can make a very high sugar (and high carbohydrate) breakfast.
And if you’re looking to lose weight or control your blood sugar, then it’s best to avoid having quite that much sugar for breakfast.
So, try using coconut yogurt instead to make your smoothies thick and creamy. It’s dairy-free, loaded with healthy probiotics, and delicious. Just make sure to buy one without added sugar.
Coconut yogurt is also perfect for those on a ketogenic diet as it adds in lots of healthy fats (and probiotics) into your diet without the extra carbs.
If you have trouble finding coconut yogurt at your local store, then you can make it yourself. Also, if you’re on the autoimmune protocol, you’ll probably want to make your own coconut yogurt to ensure all the ingredients are AIP-friendly. Here’s a slow cooker recipe for making coconut yogurt. Here’s a recipe that uses the Instant Pot. And here’s one using a yogurt maker.
Blueberry Coconut Yogurt Smoothie Recipe
Place the coconut yogurt, coconut milk, blueberries, vanilla extract, and stevia into a blender. I think the vanilla extract and small amount of stevia as well as the blueberries provide plenty of sweetness to this smoothie. But if you find that you need more sweetness, then try adding a dash of raw honey as well.
Blend well and enjoy for a quick and delicious breakfast, brunch, or snack.
