I went off to work late this morning, leaving left my son at home (working with my partner) knowing that he hadn’t eaten breakfast. I returned home a few hours later after teaching a couple of classes and when I walked into the kitchen, I did a quick scan to see if he had eaten anything (as any mother would do!). He might be 21, but he’s still my baby! I love that he works here so I can make sure he gets some goodness into him. When I realized he’d eaten nothing, I went down and asked what he wanted and when he said he wasn’t hungry, I wasn’t happy!  I managed to convince him to let me make him a ‘drink’. And this is what happened –  I threw in whatever I could get my hands on while still keeping it ‘clean and fresh’ tasting and looking. He was pleasantly surprised and LOVED it! I loved it so much I made myself one, and then Charli got home from school and she had one too! Charli and I had the reduced calorie version and it was just as delicious. Om nom nom. Try it – but remember this is a MEAL REPLACEMENT and not something to be had alongside ‘chewable food’ 🙂

 

Remember you can buy your kefir grains here and make your own kefir – and amazing probiotic drink yourself! 🙂

Reduced calorie recipe: Serves 2 (610 calories – 6g carbs)

Ingredients:

  • 1 serve strawberry protein powder (I use Bioflex WPC)
  • 1 serve frozen coconut flesh
  • Banana extract
  • 500 ml milk kefir
  • 2 Tbsp. Melted butter
  • 2 Tbsp. Melted coconut oil

TIP: If you are watching your carb count, this will help 🙂

  • Use natural banana extract instead of banana for a lower carb count (or simply leave it out)
  • The banana has 4g if you put in 1/5
  • The coconut flesh has 8g of carbs per hundred (which is one pack)
  • The protein powder has 2g of carbs and the milk kefir has 1g.
  • Use whatever flavoured protein powder you have – it doesn’t have to be strawberry
