Whole30 Approved Breakfast Smoothie

I am on day 10 of my Whole30 Challenge and doing pretty well. I’ve had some slip ups – who wouldn’t when you can’t eat dairy, grains and hello NO WINE! I am ok with my slip ups because it’s normal and I feel I am doing well otherwise. One big thing I’ve noticed is my energy levels have increased. All this week I’ve been getting up at my scheduled time of 5:45am – yes I know it’s early but it is the only way I can get some time for myself and get work done on those busy days. I also don’t have those late afternoon sleepy times that I would get around 3:00pm. Any whoo…you came here for this amazing smoothie! Here it is, my new favorite way to start the day!

When making this smoothie I used a unflavored a Superfood Protein Smoothie packet , it also comes in chocolate, strawberry or vanilla. It’s non-GMO, gluten free, vegan and contains no soy, dairy, whey, artificial ingredients or sugar. One protein pack contains a whooping 17 grams of plant based protein which makes it perfect for those doing a sugar detox, whole30 challenge or looking for paleo ideas.  For more Paleo based idea head over to my Paleo Favorites Pinterest board or get inspired by checking out my Sugar Detox Tips and Tricks Pinterest board.

    Smoothies are actually discouraged on the Whole30… so this recipe not really “Whole30 approved”:

      Its only a recomendation not a rule. Smoithues can be used within the whike30 bracket. This smoothie is whole30 approved and its delicious, you can add a scoop of paleo approved primal protein powder to it and get 25 grams of protein, it’s great for after a good workout.

      “There is no official Whole30 ban on smoothies. This is just a recommendation, based on the science and our experience. We outline all of this in It Starts With Food, but we’re happy to go over it again real quick. First, we would much rather see you eat a meal you have to chew instead of drinking your calories, because satiety. Smoothies are usually super heavy on the fruit, which means you’re ingesting way more sugar than you would if you just ate the fruit in its whole form. Also, smoothies don’t usually contain protein, so you’re missing out on both satiety and complete protein, which is really hard to make up in just your two other meals. Plus drinking a huge whackload of fruit first thing in the morning can set you up for more volatile energy, hunger, and cravings throughout your day. But no, we’re not going to kick you out of the Whole30 for having a smoothie. Just maybe have some eggs with it, okay?”

    The Superfoods Protein unflavored packet has Stevia in it. Stevia is not an approved food on Whole30. No sugar or sugar substitutes allowed no matter if they are “natural”.

    This post is very misleading to those starting out on whole 30- your superfoods protein powder contains pea protein and brown rice protein both of which are not allowed on the whole 30 program.

      You can use a paleo approved grass fed primal protein powder instead of the one suggested in the actual recipe. Its tastes great too!

    This is definitely not a Whole30 Approved recipe…very deceitful to represent it as one.

    This may contain Whole compliant ingredients, but is not Approved by Whole by a longshot. Take a look in the Whole 30th Forum. The title of this blog post is very misleading.

    NOT whole30

    Not whole 30 approved and had a million calories. I’d need a long nap after this.
