Try Ine Reynierse’s Lekker Low Carb Beverage Recipes: Bulk Ice Tea and Protein Smoothie

Low Carb is LekkerLow Carb is Lekker author Ine Reynierse has shared two of her staple beverage recipes on her blog, one for Bulk Ice Tea and another for Better than Banana Protein Smoothie.

The latter uses pumkin as a base. Reynierse admits that it might seem shocking or strange, but urges you to give it a try. “Pumpkin has more potassium than bananas. ‘Banana people’ however always makes it sound like a banana is the only way to obtain a much needed dose of potassium,” the low-carb, high-fat expert writes, explaining the additional benefits of pumpkin.

Try Reynierse’s beverages:

Better than Banana Protein Smoothie


2 heaped Tbsp cooked pumpkin
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp xylitol
1 Tbsp butter (soft or melted)
1 cup Iced Tea (As above)
1/2 cup Coconut cream

1 Tbsp Protein Powder.
