Paleo Mango Lime Kombucha Smoothie/Ice Cream

Mango, Lime & Kombucha Smoothie - Paleo, Nut Free, Whole 30-5283This one of those times when the stars align and BAM!  Magic happens.

I have been relying very heavily on smoothies for my son for his best dose of nutrient dense foods…this means one meal a day is frequently a smoothie.

The challenge is how to make a super nutrient dense drink that:

  1. Still tastes amazing for my SUPER picky son
  2. Is free of ALL Top 8 allergens.
  3. Is a balanced meal with protein and fat.

It has taken awhile, but I much more adept at making great smoothies now that manage to do ALL these things.

The inspiration for this recipe came from a blogger from down under, Oh Nom Ally.  She has a weekly blender linky party that I participate in, and this was her contribution one week.

I turned to it knowing I had mangoes on hand.  Let’s be frank…..my son can not have berries…so my frozen fruit options are not as plentiful or affordable as I would like.  I am a huge fan of the Thai mangoes, but find the frozen cubed varieties ho hum.  Until THIS smoothie.

Ally’s Mango Lassi smoothie looked delicious in it’s own right, but it did not meet my #2 and #3 criteria for my son.  When I was finished with it, it was a new recipe with magical results.  But seriously look at her picture, don’t you just want to lick your screen??!!  There is a reason I pinned that smoothie!

Don’t forget, GELATIN is the magical gut healing protein source in this and most of my smoothies.  A must have!

    I am new to eating free of allergens, I have never heard of kombucha…..and google it for more information. Is buying the tea and brewing it the same as how you are referencing it? Or are you culturing it yourself?

    • Hi Veronica, good question! Kombucha defined is fermented tea drink. If you buy it in the the store, it is already fermented and cultured for you. I make my own using just a variety of teas and sugar and something called a ‘scoby’ a live organism of yeast and bacteria…it cultures the tea, and the sugar is what it ‘eats’ while it cultures. WHat is left if a mostly caffeine and sugar free sparkling beverage that is loaded with tons of good for you bacterias (among other things). I like to make my own because it is pennies for batch and $3-4 a bottle in most cases, sometime $2.50 on sale. Hope that helps!

  4. This smoothie takes me to somewhere warm…much needed as I wait for spring! What a great idea to add kombucha! I must try this!

    Hi Tessa,
    This looks delicious and I always forget about adding gelatin…Thanks for the reminder! Aloha, Lori

  8. Your smoothie recipe looks so refreshing! I love how you added Kombucha to it too! Pinning now … Did you cook the butternut squash before your froze it? Or did you use the butternut squash frozen from the bag? Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to try it!
