Strawberry Milkshake Smoothie- PCOS and Insulin Resistance Friendly
It’s that time of year where I want everything strawberry flavored (and especially milkshakes) but with PCOS, I avoid indulging that craving very frequently because I just don’t feel good after.
So the other morning when I was craving a very strawberry flavored milkshake, I set out to make this smoothie dupe.
Strawberries are really good for you, full of fiber, antioxidants and polyphenols. They are great for gut health, blood pressure and more. They are also low glycemic which means you can eat more of them without worrying about spiking your sugars too high.
I added some freeze dried strawberries to help increase the flavor even more and I recommend organic strawberries for that reason too, they’re just better.
You can find my recommended protein powders and resistant starch powder in my amazon shop here😊
I hope you try it and love it! Let me know if you do!
1 handful (about 3/4 cups) organic strawberries
2 teaspoons freeze dried strawberries
1 serving vanilla protein powder (this is the one I used)
1 serving resistant starch powder (helps feed your gut bacteria, you could sub for 1 teaspoon fiber like chia seeds- this is the resistant starch powder I use)
1 handful ice
8 oz milk of choice- I use a non-dairy milk for this and prefer my smoothies a little more liquid so they can go through a straw better, try less water at first if you want a thicker smoothie
Blend and enjoy!
