“NEW way to eat your okra!”
“Try this MIND-BLOWING superfood veggie!”
“This SECRET SUPERFOOD ingredient will trim your tummy in no time flat!”
OK, enough propaganda. Just make this breakfast shake if you want to get a hearty dose of okra into your diet.
I’ve noticed that a lot of okra recipes involve chocolate. I mean, who doesn’t love a chocolate-covered vegetable, right? Chocolate is great, but sometimes I like other flavors too – and that’s where this shake comes in. When paired with blueberries and other fruit (bananas, oranges, or peaches are great), okra flavor gets kind of lost…and to the picky palette, that’s probably a good thing. If you’ve tried the Chocolate Dreamy and decided it’s not for you, give this shake a try instead. You might find that you can handle okra better in this flavor combo.
Trim Healthy Mamas, this filling shake is an E because of the high dosage of blueberries and fruit involved. Did I mention that this shake is filling? It will definitely fill you up for breakfast, but if you don’t want quite so much (the recipe actually made 2 of the milkshake glasses shown in the picture), halve the recipe. I do recommend keeping the whole amount of protein powder to help fill you up, though.
There’s no ice in this shake (it relies on frozen blueberries and okra for its smoothie quality), so it has a nice smooth texture. There’s a whole cup of okra in this baby! If that’s too much for your taste buds – either in taste or texture – feel free to just use half the okra and replace the other half with ice.
Comment below and tell me which fruit is your favorite in this shake! I personally like to get my half bananas in fairly frequently because if I don’t, I start getting muscle cramps in my feet.

**I actually use part almond milk, part water, to save money. If you have a nut allergy, try carton (not canned) coconut milk in place of the almond milk. (Most people with nut allergies can have coconut products, but check with your doctor first.)
Be sure to use frozen okra and frozen blueberries since this recipe does not call for any ice. If you feel like a cup of okra is too much for you either in taste or texture, try subbing half of it with ice.
