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.
- 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)
- Fill the coconut milk in your blender.
- 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.
- Chop the cucumber and apple into slices or chunks and add to the coconut milk.
- Add the spices and a bit of almond milk.
- Then blend on high until everything is smooth.
