Wild Blueberry Smoothie

One of the things that got me into trouble with oxalates in the past was my morning smoothie.  I would make it with nut butter or hemp protein powder, toss in a couple of very large handfuls of spinach and blend it all together with almond milk.  That would be about 1,000 mg of oxalates per smoothie.  Considering I’m down to 50 mg a day that is an enormous amount of oxalates to be pumping into my body.

Since beginning a low oxalate lifestyle (LOL), I thought I would have to give my morning smoothie up.  I simply needed to be more thoughtful in how I put it together.  Switching my spinach for romaine lettuce was key.  Romaine is very low in oxalates.  I stopped using almond milk and switched to flax and coconut milk.  I actually like these two options better.  Blueberries are some of the lowest fruits for oxalate content.  Bananas are also low, which I use here to sweeten this smoothie.  Enjoy!
