Meal Planning Monday

Welcome to our series on Meal Planning! If you are like us, we like to plan but are not always into cooking a million meals on the weekends! (We give props to those of you who do though!) So, come Monday we are usually trying to figure out what's for dinner!

This series focuses on easy to prepare meals that picky eaters will enjoy too! We are also focusing on how to make them allergy free - or give allergy free options!

If you have any ideas that you would like to share...we would like to post your recipe and give you your own blog post here on the Knowledge Safari blog! Just send an email to !

Gluten Free / Dairy Free High Protein "Banilla" Breakfast Smoothie

By , Guide

Kids love this creamy delicious high protein "banilla" smoothie. There's a lot of nutritional value in this 5-minute busy morning gluten and dairy free smoothie. Use a frozen banana for extra

creamy texture.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 2 servings

2 cups unsweetened dairy free milk substitute (I used Good Karma Organic Wholegrain Ricemilk)
2 ounces dairy free protein powder (I used Healthy-N-Fit 100% Egg Protein Vanilla Ice Cream Flavor)
1 peeled and sliced medium frozen banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of nutmeg (optional)

Pour 2 cups of chilled ricemilk in blender. Add egg white protein powder, frozen banana slices, vanilla and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Serve garnished with a dash of nutmeg (optional). Reminder: Always make sure your work surfaces, utensils, pans and tools are free of gluten. Always read product labels. Manufacturers can change product formulations without notice. When in doubt, do not buy or use a product before contacting the manufacturer for verification that the product is free of gluten.
