The Corn-free Link Party is Back for the Summer!
The move is complete but the unpacking is never-ending! But I have a brand-new kitchen in my new home and I can’t wait to make all sorts of fabulous new recipes for you. My tip for this week was a created out of necessity during my move.
Tip #4: Batch Prep for Protein Shakes
Necessity is the mother of invention, right? I needed a quick high protein breakfast to keep me going during my move. I wanted it so fast that I didn’t even need to use the blender. So instead of freezing my nut milk to blend into my shake, I froze the shake ingredients to add to my nut milk!
This will work with any shake recipe you like, but my turmeric-spiked, inflammation-fighting combo is below. Hint: You’ll want to go with strong flavors, if you use the turmeric. The cacao masks the flavor in my version.
My Protein Shake Base Ingredients
- Protein powder (I use pea protein)
- Raw cacao powder
- Sweetener ( I used coconut sugar)
- Cashew butter
- Turmeric powder, optional (for inflammation)
- Homemade almond/brazil nut milk (just enough to blend it together)
By the way, I have a lot of pulp leftover from all the nut milk that went into the shakes. I’m looking for creative ways to use that up. A girl can only eat some many corn-less tortillas and un-cornmeal muffins. Ideas?
I’ll post the featured recipes from the uber link party later this week.

Increasing Corn Allergy Awareness
I’m so pleased that everyone is enjoying the corn-free link party. One of my long-term goals is to raise awareness of corn allergies until it is recognized as a top allergen and labeling is required. It’s my personal opinion that corn allergies in the United States are very under-diagnosed. It’s in just about everything so it’s hard to eliminate and prove that corn is the cause of the allergy symptoms.
I think this party can help raise the awareness with bloggers. So I encourage you to spread the word and thank you for linking up today!
I appreciate all your comments. I’m always so pleased to find out that I’m providing valuable information to you. A couple of people have told me that my spam blockers have given them problems. I’m so sorry that spammers are ruining it for us all. I just don’t have time to fish out the real comments from the spam and hold down a full-time job.
