Banana Smoothie Recipe
for a Low Oxalate Smoothie
A banana smoothie recipe can easily be turned into a low oxalate smoothie.
The great thing about bananas is that they add a creamy texture to your smoothies and are a lower oxalate fruit.
Bananas contain about 3 mg. of oxalate per banana.
Also, be sure that your banana smoothie recipes are made with fresh and organic ripe bananas to receive the most enzymes.
Bananas contain the enzymes amylase and maltase. Both of these enzymes break down complex starches or carbohydrates into more easily digestible sugars.
To make a banana smoothie recipe more balanced, you should also add in healthy fats and some protein.
Banana Smoothie Recipe
- 1 to 2 cups of Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
- 1 or 2 Fresh Organic Ripe Bananas
- 1 to 2 cups of Organic Grass Fed Yogurt (preferably raw) or Organic Grass Fed Vanilla Ice Cream
- Optional: 1 cup Organic Grass Fed Milk (preferably raw) & Crushed Ice
Strawberries are relatively low in oxalates, but I wouldn't use more than 1 cup for this recipe.
- Add the strawberries into your blender.
- Peel and add in the Bananas. Then add the yogurt or ice cream into your blender.
- Pour in the milk and the crushed ice. Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Makes 2 to 4 servings.
Use a homemade raw yogurt, or organic non homogenized store bought yogurt.
Also, for more of a dessert smoothie or fruit shake add in ice cream instead of the yogurt.
The best type of ice cream is homemade because you can include enzyme rich ingredients like raw milk, raw cream, raw eggs, and raw honey.
And you can learn to make your own homemade ice cream.
My Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe
- 1/2 cup of Frozen Organic Strawberries
- 1/2 of a Slightly Unripe Organic Banana (lower glycemic)
- 1/2 cup of Raw Grass Fed Milk
- 1/4 cup of Raw or Vat Pasteurized Grass Fed Cream
- 1 Lg Pastured Organic Raw Egg
- Add the frozen strawberries into your blender.
- Peel and add in the 1/2 a banana. Then add in the raw milk and cream.
- Crack the egg open and add into the blender.
- Blend until smooth and creamy. Makes 1 serving.
This is a rich and creamy smoothie. It kind of tastes like liquid ice cream!
Apple Banana Smoothie Recipe
- 1 Organic Red Apple
- 2 Small Organic Ripe Bananas
- 1 cup of Organic Grass Fed Whole Milk (preferably raw milk)
- Or try another low oxalate milk like Coconut
- 2 tsp. of Raw Organic Honey
Apples are another low oxalate fruit - especially when you peel them.
- Peel the apple and cut into smaller pieces. Peel and slice the bananas.
- Add the apples and then the bananas into your blender. Add in the milk and honey.
- Blend until smooth and then pour into your glass. Top with a drizzle of honey.
Organic raw honey can be a great digestive aid for your banana smoothie recipes.
Raw honey contains digestive enzymes like protease (which breaks down protein) and amylase (which breaks down starch).
Actually raw honey contains many different types of enzymes and depending on the type of honey may contain up to 5000 enzymes!
As you can see, making a banana smoothie recipe can add more enzymes into your diet.
Just keep in mind that you should keep a good balance between carbohydrates, fats, and protein to keep your metabolism working correctly.
Also, strive to create a nice balance of flavor in your banana smoothie recipes.
A more tropical approach would be replacing the dairy with coconut milk, coconut yogurt, or coconut ice cream.
