Come summer I want to be outdoors as much as possible, enjoying the sunshine, water sports, and fresh sea air. That leaves little room or desire for meal planning, turning on the oven, or sitting down three times a day for a full meal! There’s just something about the heat that zaps my appetite but leaves me craving cold, creamy, and refreshing smoothies for breakfast or lunch.

My Piña Colada Smoothie Bowl is a quick and easy option that contains a full serving of collagen protein, plenty of energy-fueling glucose, and filling fats! It will definitely be a go-to light meal or snack for me this summer that I can whip up during breaks from the pool or after a warm walk or paddleboard outside.

I have rediscovered my love of fruit in the past year and find it perks up my energy, keeps me satiated, and is a wonderful way to get in extra carbs to keep my hormones and thyroid happy! If you choose to leave out the banana for any reason, I would reduce the amount of coconut milk to 1/3 cup so you don’t end up with smoothie soup. This can also be consumed as a traditional smoothie — but make sure you use at least a colorful straw to keep things festive. Even better would be a tiny paper umbrella, which is the ultimate costume jewelry of all beverages.

    This is right up my alley! Although I remember having read somewhere that you should not (over-)mix the collagen hydrolysate (but I’ve forgotten the exact reason why … ) – anyway does this recipe also work if I sub whey protein for the gelatin / collagen?? Thanks in advance! 🙂

      Hi Victoria,
      Chiming in here to let you know whey protein is not included in the elimination diet, which is why the recipe calls for collagen. If you tolerate it, you are free to experiment and see if it works!

    Enjoyed your presentation on HA today, June 13th. Thanks! At the end you talked about getting emotional support…do you know any websites where there might be for Hashimoto’s people, like locally? I live near Seattle. I’ve been diagnosed since 2006, so 10 years has not brought much support, though my sweet husband of 40 years, tries very hard.
    HOWEVER, what do you think of this? My doctor (ND) pointed out that what has been causing my immune system to mess up (or at least contribute) are my SEVEN root canal teeth and FOUR wisdom teeth cavitations which were not taken out correctly, 48 years ago and have caused much necrosis/bacteria. Have you heard of this? Even though I find much evidence on the web about this, I am still very much alone on my pursue of this because mainstream dentistry laughs at people like Hal Huggins who did much research starting in the 30’s..I have begun the the biological dentistry protocol but am doing other things like you talk about as well..looking forward to your book in Dec.!!
