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.
Several months of yeast (Candida) infections. I am diabetic, controlled I thought.
I’m sorry to hear that Wilda, that is a real burden. I remember very well from my own experience what that felt like to go from one infection to the next. Hope you’ll be able to leave it behind for good soon. All the best!
