What do you do with leftover rice? You blend it ?

I see the puzzled look on your face, and I agree, it is somewhat weird. At least I have never heard anyone do that before.

But when you think about it, it makes total sense:

Brown rice is super nutritious, gives slow release energy that keeps you full for longer. And it even has a cleansing effect on your gut.

And with it’s lovely white colour and fond memories of rice puddings, we are onto a winning combination here.

I only thought of adding rice, when I realized that most substantial Smoothie Recipes contain oats. I love oats. But more times than not they don’t agree with me. Whereas I have never had any problems from eating brown rice – and I ate tons of that stuff in the initial stages of the Candida Diet.

This is a Smoothie to my liking – simple, lush & filling!

And healthy, too, of course.

 Ingredients

  • ½ can coconut milk
  • 3-4 heaped tbsp cooked brown rice (or brown rice protein powder)
  • ½ small apple (I used Braeburn)
  • ½ cucumber
  • 1 tsp Maca powder (you could use vanilla instead)
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • a few dashes of almond milk (I used unsweetened)
  • optional: ¼ tsp spirulina and ¼ tsp chlorella)

 Instructions

  1. Fill the coconut milk in your blender.
  2. Add the cooked brown rice or rice protein powder. If you opt for cooked rice and it’s already a day old then it’s best to briefly fry the rice with the coconut oil. Put aside for a few minutes to cool down again.
  3. Chop the cucumber and apple into slices or chunks and add to the coconut milk.
  4. Add the spices and a bit of almond milk.
  5. Then blend on high until everything is smooth.
