Smoothie Recipes for a Better Breakfast
September is Better Breakfast Month – not to mention kids back to school and the beginning of fall. All of this, plus the fact that I like to do a detox this time of year, made me think of smoothie recipes.
But, I’m going to be honest here, I don’t really like to drink my foods . . . it’s always bland. This is primarily because I don’t do dairy. I’m a bit lactose intolerant, yes, but mostly I just don’t like the junk dairy products on the market. My options were either some non-nutrient dense weird isolate packed with sugar (let’s be honest it’s just a milkshake in disguise), grain based options that bloat me up, or chemical ingredients that I couldn’t pronounce. Plus most taste like chalk. Why bother in my opinion!
A good smoothie to me needs the creaminess of dairy. I’ve tried grass-fed yogurt and it’s pretty good for smoothie recipes but I can’t take the yogurt with me when I travel (the primary place I’m using smoothie recipes). I’d kinda thrown my hands in the air and given up until I found Kura!
Pure, Grass-fed Diary Protein for the Best Smoothie Recipes
Kura is a unique powder designed for smoothie recipes. Each serving provides 14 grams of New Zealand grass-fed dairy protein that’s bioavailable, plus vitamins, minerals, great taste, and here’s the key, ultimate convenience. New Zealand dairy is considered the gold standard worldwide because these are grass-fed, free roaming cows. Kura is made from the highest quality, pure, grass-fed, antibiotic free dairy protein from New Zealand – a country where genetically modified organisms (GMO) seeds are illegal.
So, you know I had to ask the people at Kura to give you the opportunity to try their product for free. Not only did they say yes – they went WAY beyond. This free giveaway includes a 16.9 oz bag of each of their great flavors (Berry, Chocolate, and Vanilla) PLUS a Cuisinart Smoothie Blender!
You will be rocking a better breakfast!
What Makes Kura Protein Healthier:
- 14 grams of pure grass-fed, bioavailable protein
- 100% RDA of Vitamin D, C, B6, B12, and six other vitamins & minerals
- 26 essential vitamins and minerals
- 5 grams of fiber
- 5.4 grams Omega-3 (4 times what’s in a single serving of salmon)
- 4 billion CFU active probiotics
- GMO free
- No added sugar (only what occurs from the lactose in milk)
- No preservatives
- No artificial sweeteners, flavors of colors
I’ve written about the importance of grass-fed meat and dairy before. If you missed it, here is one of the many articles. It’s part of what makes the Kura product healthier though.
Compared to non-grass fed protein, grass-fed protein is lower in fat, cholesterol and calories. Plus it packs a bigger nutritional punch – it’s higher in beta-carotene (Vitamin A) and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a beneficial fatty acid that can improve bone mass, reduce body fat, and help maintain lean body mass. Of course, cows that are fed grass and allowed to roam are happier. You can taste the difference!
Kura has a great website with tons of smoothie recipes and smoothie tips. There’s also great articles on health and wellness including everything from All About Fiber to Pre- and Post-Workout Nutrition and lots more. Just to add to the free stuff I’ve created three new smoothie recipes with videos to help you make a Better Breakfast plus a quick one sheet guide to help you individualize your smoothie recipes. Whip these up in your new Cuisinart Smoothie Blender thanks to Kura!
