Phase 2 Smoothies

This is the most popular question of new folks- what to have for Phase 2 breakfast. The thought of eating veggies and meat for breakfast is rough for some. Me- a good stir fry with tons of veggies and some delicious steak is very satisfying.

But some P2 days, I want something lighter. Smoothies are perfect. While I have a whole list of smoothies, here are a few that are standards.

You can use NOW Brand Plain Egg White Powder for protein, or liquid egg whites (they are pasteurized) or my preference, Great Lakes Brand Beef Collagen Powder (in the green can). For this, 4T is standard protein serving and 2T is a snack (6T and 3T for over 40lb goal). You can use this in broth, in tea, in any liquid as well.  ***UPDATE 1/19/2018-Haylie no longer approves of these, so it is up to you if you want to use them. (she says she can no longer confirm the cleanliness of the ingredients)***

Adjust the cocoa and sweetener to your personal taste.

Veggies listed are standard portions for meals. For the larger weight loss goal, double them.

You can have these without protein for a "dessert" or between meals if you are hungry.

  1. I know it's a silly question, but for the Rhubarb Lime Smoothie, should the rhubarb be cooked?

    1. The red can is gelatin (think jello) and will be pretty gross in a smoothie. Use that for gummies or jello type desserts

  3. Is splash of vanilla in the chocolate smoothie, "vanilla extract"??? Thanks! I want to try this tomorrow morning.

  4. The thin mint version was a game changer for me. Thank you for that. I made the oranger version as well. For both, I added the appropriate extract flavor (mint or orange), which punched up the flavor. And I add a scoop of collagen powder for protein. Great breakfast shake.

    1. I'm so glad you like them! I would just add more mint or more orange zest instead of extract, since they have alcohol. Also, make sure you're using the right amount of collagen powder... if your scoop is 4T, you're good!

    1. Cindy, the ones I listed are the ONLY one approved by Haylie for FMD. If you don't do the FMD, you can add the protein powder of your choice

    1. Pea protein has not been approved. Haylie has said people who want to gain weight use it.

  9. I was hesitant to try egg whites in a smoothie but the Chocolate one is great! and makes Phase 2 bearable for me (I don't love meat protein) Thanks for the tip! Great way to get more greens in too. I added a big scoop of cinnamon as well which was delish. Thank youuu

  10. Do you mix in the collagen powder at the end to avoid frothing or do you just put all ingredients in at once?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It doesn't get frothy like egg whites do. You can add it any time

  11. just to clarify how many dried egg whites do I add to the smmoothies for a shake 40+?
    We tried the collagen and it was a disguising bust since it was the type that gelled. Yuck.
    Does FMD now not approve of the egg whites as well? Frustrating that they keep changing.

    1. For the egg white powder, you'll need to check the package. It should tell you how much equals 1 egg white, just multiply that by how many egg white you need.

      Collagen doesn't gel, you must have gotten gelatin. You can use that for p2 gummies.

      Where did you see that egg whites are not approved? They most definitely are, all phases

      Delete
  12. Is there another egg white powder recommended?

    1. Haylie only recommends her shakes. It's up to you if you want to use a protein powder, but know that if weight loss stalls, it could be that powder you use

  13. Can I have a smoothie as a snack? like on phase 2?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Do you normally use fresh or frozen spinach in your smoothies?

  15. Hello!
    Thanks for the post. I have one question when I googled Great Lakes brand beef
    Collagen powder. I get Great Lakes Gelatin
    Collagen Hydrolysate (it's a green can) is that the same product? Thanks!

  16. How much egg whites do you use? I don’t see it in the recipe.

    1. If you follow FMD, use the portion for your weight loss goal.
