And the quest for the perfect Candida-friendly smoothie

It’s the morning of day three and I’m still determined to create a delicious Candida-friendly green smoothie. I didn’t realize how much I relied on bananas to make my green smoothies so sweet, smooth and delicious! The next month will be an experiment with all of this for sure.

I found this great infographic from Fork&Beans that helps.

Typically my smoothies look like this:

1 cup unsweetened carrageenan-free almond milk

2 cups greens (usually baby kale or spinach)

1/2 cup berries

1-2T ground flaxseed or chia seed

1T coconut oil or almond butter


3 ice cubes

I guess it will be a lot of trial and error and recording which ones taste the best. This morning I used baby kale, blueberries, almond butter, flaxseed and cinnamon. It has been the best so far. I am waiting to hear back if I can have coconut water and raw cacao, because that could jazz things up a bit.

I’m open to suggestions if you have any!

  1. . . . and creamy, bananas make smoothies taste sweet, rich and creamy!

    Are cashews included in your food list? If so, I would be tempted to try cashew butter instead of the almond butter.
