Strawberry Electrolyte Smoothie (Dairy-free, Paleo, SCD-legal, Vegan Option)

Strawberry Electrolyte Smoothie (Paleo, Dairy-free, SCD-legal, Vegan option) | This is so good...Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night and think about food?  This happened to me last night and this Strawberry Electrolyte Smoothie is the result of that late night brainstorm.

I’m a huge fan of coconut water.  It’s been called Nature’s Gatorade and for good reason.  An 8 ounce serving boasts 250mg of sodium, 600mg of potassium, 60mg of magnesium, and 45mg of phosphorus.  We love a glass after a hot day in the sun or a heavy workout, but lately I’ve been enjoying at least one glass a day just as a treat.

I made this smoothie today before an early morning yoga class which turned out to be pretty core intensive and sweaty.  This Strawberry Electrolyte Smoothie powered me through and I wasn’t craving more food after class.  I’ve added avocado for the good fats and some extra calories.  I did not taste the avocado at all, so don’t be afraid to give it a try.  It adds some lovely creaminess to this delicious smoothie!

I also added some gelatin for added protein.  Feel free to leave the gelatin out if you are looking for a vegan or vegetarian option.

If you are following SCD, make sure to use the seeds from a vanilla bean instead of regular vanilla extract.  The vanilla seeds will make this even more decadent!

Strawberry Electrolyte Smoothie (Paleo, Dairy-free, SCD-legal, Vegan option) | This is so good...I always have frozen strawberries in the freezer and with strawberry season just around the corner, I’ll be stocking up for more delicious smoothie creations like this one!
