We are grain free, sugar free, lo carb and I need to remove fruit, honey. Anyone have any suggestions for smoothies and fatty snacks....

I'm ok for meals but am stumped when it comes to these. All the coconut oil frozen snacks, high fat smoothies I have been making have all had some honey and fruit. sigh.

How 'bout flavoring with a bit of vanilla? Either drizzle in some vanilla extract, or toss a vanilla bean in the kefir or yogurt for a day or two in the fridge before making the smoothie.

I've been off my smoothie kick lately, been on a meat and eggs kick. But when I was doing low-carb smoothies, I would put in half an avocado and a quarter cup of berries. Berries and avos are much lower carb than other fruits - especially compared to, say, bananas and mangos or pineapple.

I make this, but you could put in a little stevia instead of honey and I bet it would still taste good:

2 raw eggs
2 TBSP raw butter (unsalted)
2 TBSP coconut oil
a little raw honey (it really needs very little or it tastes too sweet)
a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon

you can drink it like a smoothie (and add water to thin if you want) or let it sit in the fridge for a few hours, and it sets up like pudding. This is inspired by a smoothie recipe from firefaery.

i understand the grain free thing but fruit free? why? fruit is so amazingly healthy for growing children and adults. i just would hate to keep my kids away from fruit especially in the winter when they need the vitamins and enzymes fruit provides.

Fruit can exacerbate any yeast overgrowth. It is not a permanent thing, and I haven't eliminated white grapefruit and wild blueberries.
