Blue-green Spirulina Milk

If you’ve all stuck with me so far- through encouraging you to drink your greens, sneaking vegetables into desserts, or turning a simple zucchini into past, then I have a hunch this you won’t be a surprise that I’m telling you to drink blue milk. I’ve made many recipes here on Nutrition Stripped using this blue-green algae, spirulina, but have yet to share with you all a staple drink I love making as well, Blue-green Spirulina Milk! First, I know the color and thought about drinking an algae can be completely off-putting and intimidating, but I promise once you get over the color (which I think is quite beautiful), the taste will speak for itself. It’s delicious and incredibly nutrient dense in comparison to the cows milk counterpart.

Whole foods are fun. I love being able to transform a simple vegetable, fruit, and spirulina in this case into something everyone can enjoy yet is completely innovative. Blue-green Spirulina Milk is a play on traditional nut milks that I’ve shared here before, it’s incredibly mineralizing due to the nature of spirulina, which contains a host of minerals, amino acids, and vitamins. I mix this with a classic nut milk recipe and it’s subtly sweetened with dates and vanilla. The end result is a beautiful blue-green colored nut milk that’s creamy, cool, healthy, and looks beautiful!

Banana Milk

Bananas + water = Banana Milk. Technically this isn’t a “milk”, but it can be used exactly as you would use regular milk but in a non-dairy fashion and with more ease than making your own nut milks– which I’m still a fan of. Banana Milk takes less than 5 minutes to make, which is perfect if you’re on the go and want to add a couple nutrient dense foods to the mix to make it more satiating and calorically dense. Banana Milk is creamy, frothy, refreshing, filling and a great alternative to squeeze a little more nutrient density into your diet or even your little ones diets.

Banana Milk, bananas, granola Why use banana milk? To be honest, to switch things up a bit! Homemade nut milks are great, but sometimes you want something a little more sweet and loaded with potassium and natural electrolytes. I love drinking this or pouring it over my Nourishing Muesli for a quick post-workout meal. This isn’t just for post-workout, although I’m a fan of meal timing and carbohydrate timing for specific goals, this can just as easily be enjoyed for a snack, breakfast, or even dessert.

Nut Milk, three ways {strawberry, vanilla cashew, cocoa brazil}

Today I’m sharing a couple of fun variations on my classic Almond Nut Milk recipe, one that I shared a while back as it’s a staple recipe of mine that I make almost weekly. These three nut milk recipes are all incredibly delicious, simple to make, contain no artificial sweeteners, preservatives or food colorings- just nuts, water, and some natural flavors. Use these delicious creamy non-dairy milks just as you would any other dairy product; I love it plain, with cereal, granola, muesli, porridges, and of course… dipping cookies!

These are three of my favorite variations on nut milk including Cocoa Brazil, Strawberry Almond, and Vanilla Cashew. These nut milks (or should I say NOT-milk, ha) are also perfect for those of you who may suspect your body isn’t tolerating dairy well or simply want to have some fun in the kitchen and beat the bloat at the same time.

Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie

I think after the eventful week I’ve had here on Nutrition Stripped, it was only fitting for the first recipe to share on “the new look” of Nutrition Stripped to be a green smoothie…had to. This smoothie is also perfect for all of your green holiday celebrations this St. Patrick’s Day! My Creamy Ginger Green Smoothie is perfection, absolute nourishing perfection and so deliciously simple to make! I love this smoothie for breakfast, a snack, or even with a meal for a boost of those greens I simply adore.

Alright everyone, prepare yourself for one of the most refreshing, creamy, spring-like smoothies you’ve ever tasted. Bold statement I know, it’s that good. This is my go-to smoothie in the spring when I want something filling, but also “light” on my digestion to keep my energy levels up when I’m out and about, writing, shooting, etc. This is definitely a meal in a glass as it contains healthy fats, protein, fiber, and carbohydrates all in one lovely package- if you’re looking to make this a snack, simply cut the ingredients in half or save half for later!

Bubble Water

Bubble Water is something I created several summers ago when I was craving a classic drink I used to love, bubble tea. I wanted something similar but also far less in calories, carbohydrates, and refined sugar. Bubble Water is a combination of naturally flavored water + chia seeds. Simple as that! It’s incredibly hydrating, filling, loaded with healthy fats, protein, and fiber all into one easy-to-drink glass. It’s also a delicious way to stay hydrated by using whatever “base” you enjoy!
